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.
The Risk Management, Economic Sustainability and Actuarial Science (READI) Project has helped launch a government initiative launched in April that regulates the implementation of co-operative education in Indonesia.
This initiative is part of the work that READI, housed in Waterloo’s Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, has been undertaking in Indonesia.
