Hello all, my name is Caroline Hicks and I am currently an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am currently working for an Autism Study focusing on the differences in language development between Autistic girls and boys. We are looking for participants (specifically we need more girls between the ages 8-12), if you are interested in participating in the study, please complete the contact form below:

https://unc.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_djymqa1jeZ1p2yG

If you have any questions or concerns about the study, please email me at [email protected] or my supervisor at [email protected]. You may also text or call me at 530-302-7272. If you prefer to speak with someone else, call the UNC’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) at 919-966-3113.

Hi! I don't mean to be rude, but I feel compelled to point out, since this is a language study, that

"principle" means a general rule or concept, whereas
"principal" when used as an adjective, means primary or main

and so on the poster, your supervisor should be listed as the "principal investigator" rather than as the "principle investigator."

Good luck with the study. I understand that there are far fewer girls with a diagnosis than boys and that girls tend to be older when diagnosed, and so the demographic you are seeking will be harder to find.

I think how she responds to your post will tell us a lot.
