A Prospective, Multi-Center Study of Dynamic Quantification of Social-Visual Engagement (DQSVE) in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD): Diagnosis and Assessment For Children Ages 31 - 84 Months is a research study that seeks to use eye tracking to diagnose ASD in children between the ages of 2.5 to 7 years old.
If you are interested in participating in this study, we would like to ask you several short questions to see if you might be eligible. These questions will take about 5 minutes to complete. If you are interested, answer eligibility questions here.Your child may be eligible for this study if they are/have:
- Male or female individuals between the ages of 31 - 84 months (2.5 - 7 years chronological age) at the time of consent.
- Generally healthy with no acute illnesses.
- Normal or corrected-to-normal vision with visual acuity and oculomotor function sufficient to watch short videos.
- Hearing adequate to hear information presented in age-appropriate videos of social interactions.
- Known genetic disorders (e.g., Fragile X, Williams syndrome, Tuberous Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Neurofibromatosis, Down syndrome).
- Severe hearing or visual impairment (e.g., congenital nystagmus, congenital cataracts, previous diagnosis of severe hearing deficits by otoacoustic emissions or auditory brainstem response).
- Subject has an uncontrolled seizure disorder.
- History or presence of a clinically significant medical disease or a mental state that might confound the study or be detrimental to the subject in the opinion of the investigator.
The research study will require one visit and will take about 4 hours. During the study visit your child will undergo clinical assessments and watch videos on the EarliPointTM Evaluation for Autism Spectrum Disorder device. This device will track where your child is looking as they watch the videos. Additionally, we will collect information about medical and developmental history and demographics.
