Guiding visual attention to enhance discrimination learning  

This project addresses these challenges directly by providing an in-depth analysis of visual search skills in populations (i.e., those with autism, those with Down syndrome) likely to differ dramatically in how they direct and focus attention on components of visual stimuli. Further, this basic research will be used to develop teaching procedures that match the abilities of the individual/population so that learning occurs quickly and with few errors.
