Families Needed for Home Literacy Study

February 14, 2022

The Home Literzy Project is looking for families with children ages 3-5 years old with and without autism spectrum disorder. We are interested in what takes place when parents and children share books together. We also want to compare reading with children with autism spectrum disorder with reading with children without autism spectrum disorder.

  • We will schedule a time to meet for about 15 minutes (can be your home, our lab, library, or coffee shop)
  • We will ask you to complete 3 online or paper questionnaires about your family, your reading practices with your child, and your child’s communication. (If your child has autism we will also ask you to fill out a form about their autism.)
  • We will give you 4 books to keep and an audio recorder to use when you read to your child.
  • You will read the books to your child just like you normally do
  • You will mail us the audio recorder in a self-addressed stamped envelope we provide

When we receive the recorder, we will mail you a $40 Walmart gift card.
