Description

Description

This project will examine and analyze how children with ASD pay attention to social scenes and cues in a school environment, noting the differences in children with high vs. low IQ and comparing  males vs. females.  The goal is to use this data to design school settings that meet the unique and specific needs of a wide range of children with autism. It will also help us understand why some children respond to certain types of treatment while others don’t. In addition, it targets the unique needs of two traditionally underrepresented groups in autism research; girls and children with severe intellectual disability.
