Applications of Eye Tracking in the Diagnosis of Early Stages of Autism Spectrum Disorders

Abstract

In this project we designed a computerized diagnostic test procedure to measure gaze parameters known to be related to early symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) (saccades and smooth pursuit eye movements). An eye-tracker was used to gather gaze data. Custom visual stimuli and guidelines for collecting eye tracking data from the subject group (children between 12-24 months of age) were developed. A first proof of principle study was performed on three children without suspected clinical diagnosis in the target age range. The results were promising and the procedure seems to be applicable to small children. Further work needs to be carried out in order to validate whether the procedure actually will be a good diagnostic support tool in clinical settings.
