Quantitative evaluation of sense of touch in autism

We have two open studies:

  • A  3-year grant funded by the Federal Bureau of Maternal and Child Health to evaluate the results of QST autism massage in 100 children with autism under age six. We will obtain follow-up data for 2 years (September 2012-August 2014). In the third year of the grant (September 2014-August 2015) we will evaluate the results of the massage in 35 children with autism ages 6 to 11. Enrollment is open in the Willamette Valley area of Oregon. Download brochure.  For more information about the older children clinical trial, visit http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02222662
