Health Survey of Adults with Down Syndrome
Study of Social and Emotional Characteristics of Men and Women with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders (Autism, Asperger’s Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified [PDD-NOS]) ages 18 to 40 are needed to participate in a study about gender differences in friendships and emotions of adults on the autism spectrum. Participants must be willing to allow their parents/family members to complete short questionnaires about them and to come to the OSU Nisonger Center for an assessment lasting 2.5 to 3 hours. Unfortunately, individuals who have been diagnosed with intellectual disability, Fragile X Syndrome, Prader-Willi Syndrome, or Down Syndrome, and those who have a legal guardian cannot participate in this study. Participants will receive a $50 gift card to either Amazon.com or Target.
