Researchers have developed a new technique to help doctors more quickly and accurately detect autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in children.
In a study led by the University of Waterloo, researchers characterized how children with ASD scan a person’s face differently than a neuro-typical child. Based on the findings, the researchers were able to develop a technique that considers how a child with ASD gaze transitions from one part of a person’s face to another.
