Subject: Language/Social Communication Research Program in Boston

Hi Everyone,

This is some information about a research program at BU School of Medicine....

The Language and Social Communication Research Program at The Boston University School of Medicine invites children from ages 7-16 to participate in a study. The study will include children with autism or Asperger syndrome, and children with a language based learning difficulty. The purpose of the study is to investigate how children process social information from people’s faces and complex language, including grammatical and pragmatic information. It is also investigating the brain structures involved in processing language and social information. Families will receive cognitive and language evaluations for their children, and mileage and parking fees will be covered.

If you are interested in this study, please contact Kelley at 617-414-1304 or via email at klarrow@bu.edu Website:[url] www.bu.edu/anatneuro/dcn[/url]
