A variety of comprehensive neuropsychological and cognitive tests, including paper/pencil tests, computer tasks, and interviews with parents and children will help us to investigate the neuropsychology of children with primary complex motor stereotypies.
Participants must be 4-7 years old. We are currently recruiting children with primary complex motor stereotypies. These movements include flapping or rotating the hands, fluttering fingers in front of the face, flapping/waving arm movements, opening and closing of the hands, and finger wiggling.
Total time commitment: introductory phone screening plus half a day on site at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, Maryland.
- Introductory phone screening – Parent or guardian completes a telephone questionnaire administered by our Study Coordinator to confirm whether the child meets the eligibility criteria.
- Neuropsychological assessment – A half-day assessment with a neuropsychologist at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, Maryland will include a variety of comprehensive neuropsychological and cognitive tests. If testing cannot be completed in one morning, participants may continue testing in the afternoon or an additional day may be scheduled.
