Welcome to the Neurodevelopmental Disorders Lab at the University of South Carolina! Our lab is dedicated to understanding the development of infants and children with neurodevelopmental disorders, including fragile X syndrome, Down syndrome, and autism spectrum disorder.
The NDD Lab is currently recruiting infants 12 months or younger for a longitudinal study who:
- Have fragile X syndrome
- Have fragile X premutation
- Are typically developing
Participation in our study involves:
- Assessments (lasting 2-4 hours each) at 6, 9, 12, and 24 months either at your home or at the University of South Carolina
- Summary reports of your child’s development by infant development experts
- Compensation for participation (up to $400 total)
Each visit will consist of face-to-face assessments of your child’s developmental skills, as well as interviews and questionnaires with you, the parent(s), regarding your own experiences and perceptions of your child’s development. Assessments last 3-4 hours each, and most research assessments take place in the home at a time convenient to the family. For more detailed information, please view the study timeline.
