For the infant study, we are currently recruiting:
- Families with children 3 years old or younger who have been diagnosed with fragile X syndrome, FMR1 premutation, Down Syndrome, or who have an older sibling diagnosed with autism.
- Families with typically developing children 3 years old or younger.
Participants are compensated for their time. Please contact us by email or by phone at (803) 777-5676 if you have questions or are interested in participating in the infant study.
Participation in this infant and preschool study involves an assessment of the child’s developmental skills and an interview with the parent(s) regarding their perception of their child’s development.
Studies have shown that early identification is critical to early intervention and optimal development for children who are at risk for developmental delays. Thus, we are interested in learning about the early development of infants who may be at risk for developmental delays as well as those who are typically developing.
