Summer Program for Kids (SPK) Camp Interns - NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

The Summer Program for Kids (NYU-SPK) is a 7-week intensive day camp treatment for children with ADHD that has been shown to enhance social adjustment and level of cooperation of children that have often had major problems in summer camp situations.  Interns will be involved in the process of tracking change in response to the intensive behavior modification and social skills instruction.  They will have an opportunity to assist full-time counselors in guiding activities and learning about the use of behavior management strategies.

Picky Eating App Intern - NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

The Department of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry is launching a platform of tools for advancing research, assessment, and intervention in early childhood development. One of our first projects is the Picky Eating App, an interactive mobile application intended to advance our understanding of why some children develop extremely limited food preferences. Parents experience frustration and concern with picky eating, and studies suggest these children may have or later develop additional problems. The Picky Eating App will draw from innovations within and beyond child psychiatry including: food industry research; artificial intelligence (e.g., machine learning); feeding and eating disorders; mobile application development; game design; assessment and psychometrics; adaptive interventions, and others. The Picky Eating App will use a fun, intuitive, family-facing design to gather and analyze data on children’s eating preferences. It will “learn” as it grows, providing researchers with novel insights, and parents with ever-improving suggestions on how to expand their children’s food options.

Assessing the role of psychiatric comorbidity in autism with neuroimaging - NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

Autism is a neurodevelopmental conditions characterized by qualitative impairments in reciprocal social interaction, varying degrees of communication disability, and restrictive patterns of behavior, interests, and activities. Accompanying these core symptoms, individuals with autism often present, or later develop, co-occurring behaviors, such as impulsivity, temper tantrums, hyperactivity, inattention, affective lability, or anxiety. These comorbid problems often interfere with daily functioning and pose a challenge for diagnosis, treatment and education. To date, however little is known about the neural underpinnings of comorbidity in ASD. While neuroimaging is advancing rapidly and is showing the ability to potentially reveal mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of autism and related conditions, studies focusing on comorbidity in ASD are only beginning to emerge.  This project will focus on summarizing results from these with the overall goal of identifying advances and remaining gaps to be addressed in the field.
