Are you concerned about your child’s development?

Do you think your child might have developmental delays?

If your child is between 18 months and 6 years of age, you may be eligible to participate in the ASPEN Research Study.

Participation includes completing a screening questionnaire over the phone.

Eligible families will be randomly assigned to one of two groups:

  1. Families will be invited to participate in a social communication intervention that includes 12 sessions. The intervention will provide education and training on strategies to help your child’s development.
  2. Families will receive the intervention materials and educational information on strategies to help your child’s development.

If you’re interested in participating or would like more information, contact:
