3. Children with Fragile X Syndrome Needed for Research Study

This research study is being conducted by centers across the United States to help determine if the investigational drug is a safe and effective treatment for symptoms associated with fragile X syndrome. Kennedy Krieger Institute is looking for children with fragile X syndrome, ages 5-13 years, to participate in this study. The study involves up to 9 visits to Kennedy Krieger Institute over 18 weeks, each lasting 2-10 hours. There are no direct medical benefits for participating in this study. Up to 10 telephone calls will be conducted in between visits for follow-up.

For each completed visit, participants will receive $50 reimbursement for their time and travel expenses. All testing is done free of charge.

6. Attention Parents of Children Ages 8-12: Participate in Brain Research on ADHD

We are recruiting children, ages 8 to 12, with or without ADHD, to participate in an MRI research study to learn if there are differences between the brain’s structure and its function in children with and without ADHD. There are no significant risks or direct medical benefits from participating in this study.

The study involves two days of computer games, paper and pencil tasks, and an MRI scan of the brain. Participants will be compensated $50 per day, as well as a free IQ test and report, and a picture of their brain.
