My name is Katherine Koenig and I am a graduate student and researcher at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH.
I am conducting a study with individuals with mild or moderate mental retardation who are 16 and over and are diagnosed with Down Syndrome or Fragile X Syndrome. Individuals who participate will take two tests - a test of general cognitive abilities and a computer-based test of simple tasks measuring things like reaction time. I usually test in two sessions, with each session taking about an hour and a half. Each participant will receive two $10 gift certificates to either Blockbuster Video or Target.
This research has received approval from the Case Western Reserve University Institutional Review Board and the Cuyahoga County Board of Mental Retardation and Developmental Disabilities.
This is my last year in graduate school and I am desperate for participants. I am in the Cleveland area, and I am willing to travel all over Northeast Ohio to test subjects. I can test at an individual's home. If you live in northeast Ohio and know an individual 16 or over who is diagnosed with Down Syndrome, please consider contacting me.
I will also be testing in Chicago on November 10th and 11th. If you live in Chicago and are interested in participating please let me know. My email is kag15_at_case_dot_edu.
