Participants Needed for Speech, Language, and Voice Study

March 27, 2017

Researchers are looking for individuals who are between 14 to 18 years of age for a study on speech and language characteristics of individuals who are typically developing or who have a diagnosis of Autism.

Participation in this study will involve a brief screening questionnaire over the telephone and one visit to the UMass Amherst campus (the visit will last approximately two hours). Participants will be paid $40 in the form of a gift card.

The study involves the completion of standardized speech, language, and listening tests as well as informal conversation. Researchers will also assess motor speech abilities (e.g., you will be asked to say “ah” for as long as possible in one breath).
