Anxiety and Dentists Study

Researchers from occupational therapy at the University of Minnesota are looking for adolescents aged 13 – 21 years, affected by autism, to participate in a study to see if virtual, interactive stories about going to dental visits are a feasible intervention for reducing anxiety associated with these visits.  Volunteers for the study must be able to verbalize their experiences in English, help create the interactive story, and consent to participate.  Parental consent is also required for youth under age 18 years.  Study participants will meet with researchers 3-4 times to develop the intervention and then to learn how it works.
