In collaboration with Children’s Specialized Hospital, researchers at Kessler Foundation are examining ways of improving the lives of children affected by brain injury, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Attention Deficit Disorder
Action Control in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
The purpose of this research study is to understand how children with ADHD control their actions compared to neurotypical children.
Examining the Effects of a Job Entry Intervention in Young Adults
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of Virtual Reality (VR) training programs in improving interview skills in young adults with autism.
Gait Retraining Using Visual Biofeedback of Knee Movement in Pediatrics with Cerebral Palsy
Remediation of Pediatric Attentional Deficits Using APT-3
We are looking to learn whether a computerized program called the Attention Process Training-3 (Apt-3) can improve the attention of school-aged children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or children who have had a history of concussion.
Examination of Emotional Processing in Children with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Autism
This study investigates how children diagnosed with autism or following a TBI are able to recognize emotions expressed by others.
Cognitive and Neural Correlates of Action Control in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
This study seeks to understand how children with ADHD control their actions.
Improving New Memory and Learning in School-Aged Children with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
This study investigates whether a memory training program called the Modified Story Memory Technique (mSMT) can improve learning of school-aged children with memory impairment following a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Studying Brain Connections in Pediatric Autism
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship between brain function and how symptoms are expressed in children with autism. The study seeks to evaluate how symptoms of autism vary in children. Participants will complete paper and pencil tests and receive and MRI scan.
