Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), computer applications and software, picture exchange communication system (PECS), social robots, teleconferencing, video modeling and virtual reality (including virtual and 3D environments to mimic social situations), and wearable sensors are all examples of the types of technology in the projects in this subcategory.
Graph: The subcategories for Question 4 illustrate the many approaches to treatments and interventions supported by autism research funders. The largest amount of funding supported projects to develop Model systems and therapeutic targets (35%), followed by research on Behavioral interventions (29%). Medical/Pharmacologic interventions received 16% of funding, classroom-based interventions (Educational) received 10% of funding, and Technology-based interventions and supports received 7% of funding. The subcategories with the smallest amounts of funding included Occupational, physical, and sensory-based (2%) and Complementary, dietary, and alternative (1%).
