Register your child for the 2019 SFU Social Science Camp:

Children without a diagnosis of ASD - July 13th, 2019 - 

Children with a diagnosis of ASD - July 20th, 2019 -

Details for registrants:

1. The camp for children without a diagnosis of ASD will take place on Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 9am- 3pm. The camp for children with a diagnosis of ASD will take place on Saturday, July 20, 2019 from 9am- 3pm.

2. Part of the camp involves your child participating in a research study. The research study requires minimal participation; the majority of the day is devoted to fun crafts and interactive game activities. During the study, your child will be asked to play a series of fun computer games, word games, puzzles, etc.  Your child will be given the option to participate and he or she can chose to withdraw from the study at any time. Parents will receive a summary of the results once the study is finished so you can benefit from the information we have learned. Parents/ caregivers will be required to submit the required consent forms and questionnaires before the camp starts.  Please note that for ethical reasons, we can only provide group results (children without ASD and children with ASD) and not individual test scores.  All data collected is kept confidential and is for research purposes only.

Free Workshops:

We are currently preparing free workshops to be offered during the camp for anyone who is interested in attending! More details will be available in the coming weeks.
