Researchers at King’s College London are looking for school-aged autistic children to take part in a new study called C-MAPS, which aims to map children’s profiles of cognition, motivation and attention. This research will help us to better understand children’s social and emotional development and ultimately help those who might be experiencing difficulties.
For parents, it involves completing some short questionnaires, which are expected to take 20-30 minutes. For children, it involves trying out some interactive science activities online – these can be done in 1 or 2 separate sessions, both lasting around 30 minutes.
Children will receive tokens for a raffle to win Amazon vouchers (1 x £100, 5 x £50, 10 x £30). All families that take part will get an educational newsletter that explains why it’s important to understand things like memory and attention and includes some fun science-themed activities for the whole family to do together!
