You may qualify for an intervention research study for families with children with autism spectrum disorders and feeding challenges. We are piloting an intervention for children (ages 2 to 7 years) with autism that would attempt to address your child’s specific feeding challenges primarily in your home environment. Your child will receive direct intervention and you as a primary caregiver would participate in training sessions and delivering the intervention in your home for approximately 5 to 7 hours per week over six months. Two to three assessment session will also occur at the Waisman Center. In appreciation, you will receive a $100 for completing the research study. If you withdraw from the study, you will receive $50.00. If you are interested please contact Karla Ausderau at University of Wisconsin-Madison at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608-262-0653.
