The Research Institute at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is looking for teens and adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to participate in a research study using virtual reality.
The purpose of this research study is to test whether new virtual reality technology and interactive gaming applications can help to improve social skills in teens and adults with ASD. Any teen over 12 or adult with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder is eligible to participate. Participants will be asked to make one to three visits to CHOP, wear virtual reality headsets and play interactive games, and complete questionnaires. Participants will be compensated.
If you are interested in participating in the study or want to learn more, please contact Ashley Zitter at CHOP by email or by phone at (267) 426-4971.
