The purpose of this study is to understand how motor function- the way we move our faces and bodies- impacts social communication. We are seeking adolescents ages 12-17 with or without ASD or a mixed psychological diagnosis (ADD, ADHD, ODD, or anxiety). To accommodate COVID protective measures, most of the study tasks can be completed from home through video-based assessment and online questionnaires. Then, families will be asked to make one or two short visits to the Roberts Center. During this visit you will play games and talk with our research staff. All participants will also receive a full psychological work-up, including behavioral testing for ADHD, anxiety, autism, and mood disorders. Participants and their parents are paid for their time completing the virtual visit as well as for time spent completing questionnaires. Each participant also receives a full psychological report and personalized feedback with recommendations.
