App may help identify children with autism spectrum disorderAt a Glance Researchers developed a prototype app that screens toddlers for autism spectrum disorder by tracking eye movements while showing videos on a tablet or smartphone. The app could provide an efficient, low-cost option for early detection of autism spectrum disorder. Autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, is a developmental disorder that affects communication and behavior. Studies have shown that children with the disorder have distinct patterns of eye movement when viewing social scenes that can help with early detection. Children with ASD were much less likely than typically developing children to focus on social stimuli in the videos.
