The Cognition, Brain, & Autism Lab is recruiting participants for a research study on reading comprehension at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. This study observes how children’s brains respond when they read and understand words and sentences, using a series of paper-pencil tests and a type of scan called functional magnetic resonance imaging also known as fMRI. We are recruiting children and adolescents between the ages of 7-13 diagnosed with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder, children with reading comprehension difficulties, and typically developing children. Your child may be eligible for a free language intervention. Participants must be native English speakers and right-handed. Participants cannot be claustrophobic or have braces. If you are interested in participating, contact Maria Martino at (205)202-0616 or mmartino@uab.edu
