Join A Study

In order to carry out our research, we rely heavily on participants from the community. If you think you might be interested in being part of our research, see our project listings below to learn more.

STUDY #1

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder Needed

Volunteers are needed to participate in a research study at Western to investigate brain function during auditory processing. Children will participate a 2½-3½ hour session that will include testing of their language, thinking, and social interaction skills, and measurement of their brain’s response to sounds using electroencephalography (EEG). EEG is completely non-invasive and does not involve any form of radiation.

We need children who have all of the following features:

We have a very flexible booking schedule, and can offer a time during weekdays, evenings or weekends.

If interested, or for further information, please contact our lab at asldlab@uwo.ca or 519-661-2111 x88006.

Prepare your child for a visit to the ASLD Lab with this short story.


STUDY #2

Young Children with Typical Development Needed

Volunteers are needed to participate in a research study at Western to investigate brain function during auditory processing.

EEG is completely non-invasive and does not involve any form of radiation.

STUDY #3

Infants with Typical Development Needed

We are looking for infants up to 18 months of age who have normal hearing and development and are from English-speaking homes to participate in a research study by Western University.

This study will include simple hearing tests and questionnaires that will take place in one brief appointment at Western, your home, or a community site.

Outcomes from this study may contribute to more accurate services for children with permanent hearing loss.
