STUDY TO DEVELOP A DEVICE TO AID THE DIAGNOSIS OF ASD IN PEDIATRICS

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. As of now there is a guide created by the American Psychiatric Association to help health care professionals diagnose ASD. This test is performed in a secondary care setting and can take several hours to administrate. However, it can still be difficult to diagnose since there’s no defined test such as a blood test.

The purpose of this opportunity is to develop a device to aid health care providers in the diagnosis of ASD. Early diagnosis leads to early intervention; for ASD this has been shown to have significant positive impacts on a child’s development.
