Researchers at Harvard are studying how people with AS respond to and participate in musical activities, and how parents interact musically with their children. In the study, the researchers will play your child a series of recorded songs and poems while recording his/her physiological activity. They will also ask parents to complete surveys about your experiences as a parent and about your child’s interests in music and other arts activities.

The study lasts about an hour, and as a thank-you for participation, the researchers will provide your child with a cool toy and parents with $45 in gift cards. Parking is free for the duration of the study and families will be compensated for travel to get to the lab.
