Targeted Cognitive Training: Assessment and Plasticity in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

We are recruiting children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) who are between the ages of 3-7 years old to take part in our intervention research study.

Background Information:
This study will test a new computer-based program called “A Computerized Cognitive Intervention Solution” (ACCIS), which aims to improve the way children with ASD think and solve problems. If successful, the program may provide long-term benefits to children with ASD.

Who Can Participate in the Study?
Participation entails coming to McMaster University for two or three 2-hour visits. For each visit, the study team will provide you with a parking pass to avoid incurring a parking cost. Your child will also get to choose a small prize.

If you are interested in participating in this study or would like to learn more about this opportunity, please contact
Dr. Diana Parvinchi at:, or Dr. Geoffrey Hall at (905)525-9140, extension 23033.
