Eye-tracking–based measurement of social visual engagement compared with expert clinical diagnosis of autism


Peer-Reviewed Publication

JAMA Network

About The Study: In a study of children ages 16 to 30 months assessed for autism in six specialty clinics, eye-tracking–based measurement of social visual engagement was predictive of autism diagnoses by clinical experts. Further evaluation of this test’s role in early diagnosis and assessment of autism in routine specialty clinic practice is warranted.

Authors: Warren Jones, Ph.D., of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is the corresponding author.
