We are looking for 200 students between 8-15 years-old.

  • Students with typical development, Autism or ADHD.
  • The study involves 2 visits to UC Davis and follow-up visits 15-months and 30-months later.
  • Students will work on computerized virtual reality tasks, as well as computerized and paper/pencil problem solving tasks.
  • Gift card compensation ($40.00 equivalent) is provided to students and families for each 2.5-hour visit attended.
