Research Study for graduating seniors with autism

Boston University researchers are recruiting parents and high school students with autism to participate in an 18-month longitudinal study. They are looking for students with autism who are in their last year of high school and who will graduate with a regular high school diploma. Parents and students will complete a set of online and mailed measures now and then 1 ½ years from now. Participation should take 30-60 minutes at each time point. Parents will receive a $25 gift card at each time point and youth will receive a $15 gift card at each time point.

To learn how to participate, send an email to buroad@bu.eduor call (617) 353-2060.

Child Find
Portland Public Schools actively tries to locate any unserved children with educational disabilities who reside within the school district. We are interested in any children, age 0-20 who may have mental, emotional or physical disabilities. We may be able to provide services that could make a lasting difference for these children through referring, identifying and evaluating their needs. If you are aware of any unserved children, please bring them to our attention by contacting the Portland Public Schools Student Support Services Department at (207) 874-8134 or speak to the principal in your child's school.
