Department of Physical Therapy: Youth Participants Needed for Research Study on Standing Posture

The Department of Physical Therapy at Creighton University is currently looking for 4- to 16-year-old children with autism spectrum disorder and children that are typically developing to participate in a study. Youth will stand on a force plate (used for measuring posture and is as level as the floor) and a foam pad while having their eyes open or closed, and while wearing a lantern on their head. Researchers are assessing how children use their vision and other senses to control the standing posture.

Participants will receive a $30 Amazon gift card. The session will take place at the Rehabilitation Lab at Creighton University for a 30 minutes.

For more information and details on the project please contact Anastasia Kyvelidou, MD, at or Maya Almazloum at For more information, call 402-280-5749 and leave us your name and phone number. Faculty will return each call.
