We, at the NYU Child Study Center, are researching brain function in children with and without autism spectrum disorders.
Participation consists of 2-3 visits, which include a no-cost diagnostic/ psychoeducational evaluation and an fMRI scan. Upon completion of the study, families will receive a written report summarizing the results of the evaluation. Participation is voluntary and compensation will be provided.
The beginning of the school year is an ideal time to consider a neuropsychological evaluation for your child if he/she is struggling. Given this, Dr. Whitman is currently offering a Fall 2011 Special: 25% off evaluation fees. Please contact her directly for further information. Dr. Whitman offers free consultation by phone or e-mail.
