Developing Accessible Tests for Online Cognitive Assessments in Children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders

The goal of this industry partnered project is to develop accessible online cognitive tests for children with neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Presently, Cambridge Brain Sciences is a leader in offering on-demand cognitive testing for typically-developing children and adults. An intern who is a graduate student in school psychology, will work with Cambridge Brain Sciences staff to develop audio/visual instructions for children with neurodevelopmental disorders. This work will allow cognitive testing in these children either at home, in the clinic or in schools so that children can access early therapies to promote cognition and academic achievement.
