For Expecting Parents

We are looking for pregnant families to participate in our online and in-person studies during pregnancy and once their newborn arrives.

For more information, complete our short survey.

Purpose of our research

Our goal is to understand the development of social interest and social skills, such as how we develop the ability to detect and recognize faces and goal-directed actions. We study the early emergence of visual attention, or where children look on images and videos depicting people, objects, and animals. A typical visit involves the infant or child looking at pictures and videos on a screen.

We are currently looking for:

  • Pregnant women (third trimester, at least 28 weeks pregnant)
  • Newborn infants (birth to 28 days old)
  • Infants (birth through 1 year old) who have a biological relative (such as an older sibling) who has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder
  • Toddlers (1 to 4 years old)
  • Children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (up to 5 years old)
  • Typically-developing 3- to 9-year-old children

Directions to our lab

We are located in the Department of Psychology in the Flipse Building at 5665 Ponce De Leon Blvd, Coral Gables, FL 33146. We are in room 314, on the third floor.
