ASD Screening Tools in Down Syndrome

Study Information

Dr. Channell was recently awarded an NIH INCLUDE R21 grant to determine how to best use autism screening tools in children with Down syndrome. Project collaborators include Drs. Laura Mattie and Amy Cohen at UIUC, Dr. Tracie Rosser at Emory University, and Drs. Luke Kalb and Natasha Ludwig at Johns Hopkins University/Kennedy Krieger Institute.

Caregivers of children ages 6-18 with Down syndrome are invited to participate. Participation involves completing initial questionnaires about your child’s development and a few follow-up questionnaires two weeks later. The initial survey will take about 2.5–3 hours total, and the second survey will take about 30-45 minutes. You will receive a $30 Amazon e-gift card for completing the initial survey and a $10 Amazon e-gift card for completing the second survey. For more information, contact Dr. Channell’s research team at or 217-265-6058.
