Are you the parent of a 4–8-year-old with autism spectrum disorder? You and your child may be able to participate in a study to help validate an assessment called the Emotion Dysregulation Inventory (EDI), through functional near-infrared spectroscopy technology (fNIRS). Participants will complete assessments and play computer games while they wear a cap on their head to measure brain activity.
