    • During the first appointment, your child will complete a series of clinical assessment questionnaires administered by Stanford assessors. The first appointment will last approximately 3 hours. Participants will be compensated $50 for completing the appointment.
  • Appointments 2: Neuropsychological Assessment

    • During the second appointments, your child will complete a series of neuropsychological assessments administered by Stanford assessors. The assessments include measures of IQ, reading and math abilities. The second appointment will last approximately 3 hours. Participants will be compensated $50 for completing the appointment.
  • Appointments 3: MRI Scan

    • Participants will undergo a brain scan (MRI). Pictures of their brain will be taken while they complete computer-based cognitive control tasks.
