Social Networking, Dating and Relationships
We want to learn more about how college students with and without Autism Spectrum Disorder meet friends, date, and who they go to when they need advice. Our research will inform the creation of better intervention methods for helping individuals meet new people, form, and maintain meaningful relationships.

A Study of Thinking in Autism Spectrum Disorder
Participants will be asked to play a 10-minute computer game. Participants may also be asked to complete puzzles, remember strings of numbers, define vocabulary words, and generate words given specific categories. Depending on the age of the participant, the parent or young adult will be asked to complete two or three brief questionnaires.
