If you decide that you and your son or daughter would like to be in this study, we will ask you to visit one of the study sites three times over a period of approximately 6 months. At each visit, your son or daughter will complete the Arizona Memory Assessment, which is administered on a touch tablet. We will also be collecting samples of your son/daughter’s cognitive and verbal abilities through a series of memory and speech measures administered by study staff, as well as a variety of sleep measures. Some of these measures will be administered several times across visits in order to determine if the information we obtain is consistent. Additionally, tabletop versions of a cognitive assessment will be performed. We will also ask you to fill out some questionnaires about your child’s behavior and everyday living skills.

Who can participate

Typically developing children ages 3-6. Children and adolescents with Down syndrome ages 6-17. Children and adolescents with fragile X syndrome ages 6-17.

Families will receive a $50 honorarium and the participant will receive a $5 gift card from a national retail store for each visit to the MIND Institute.
