EASE: Emotional Awareness and Skills Enhancement Study for ASD
EASE is a randomized, controlled trial research study designed to evaluate a new treatment for teens and young adults with autism spectrum disorder who struggle with handling difficult emotions like anger, sadness, and anxiety.
We are currently enrolling 12 to 21-year-old individuals with an autism diagnosis and average intellectual functioning who also have difficulties with handling their emotions. Participants will be randomized into either the EASE program or another supportive therapy program. Both programs involve 16 weekly sessions in which the participant meets individually with a therapist. There is no cost for this program and we offer payments for completing the research assessments before and after completion of the therapy programs.
