Raise your hand and be part of research. Many studies and projects conducted through the Wendy Klag Center and its affiliated faculty need volunteers. Here’s how you can help:
- The Maryland Center for Developmental Disabilities (MCDD) seeks parents and self-advocates to provide their perspective to college undergraduate and graduate trainees. Meetings would occur via Zoom. The trainees are from a variety of disciplines, including Wendy Klag Center interns in public health, and other trainees in law, education, psychology, and speech, physical and occupational therapy, among others.

- Does your preschooler have Autism Spectrum Disorder or another developmental disability? Learn about the Study to Explore Early Development (SEED).
- Do you have a baby age 8 to 12 months? Kennedy Krieger invites you and your child to participate in a research study to test the effectiveness of a new way of having playtime in improving social communication skills. View this study brochure for more information.
- Researchers at Kennedy Krieger Institute's Center for Autism and Related Disorders invite you to learn more about SPARK, an initiative combining web-based registry with DNA analysis to accelerate autism research. See a flier at this webpage.
- Is your child age 8 to 12? The Center for Neurodevelopmental and Imaging Research at Kennedy Krieger Institute is recruiting children with and without ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder for studies of attention, learning, memory, response control, and motor skills. One study involves 8 weeks of tai chi classes. Visit or email LNIR@kennedykrieger.org.
