Scientists Develops Autism Detection App For Children: Get Diagnosis In 60 Seconds

An Autism spectrum disorder detecting smartphone/PC app has been developed by scientists. The newly developed app tracks eye movement and inless that 60 seconds determines if a child exhibits signs of autism spectrum disorder. 

Autism spectrum disorder is a severe developmental disorder that impairs the ability to communicate and interact and according to stats 2 people per 1,000 worldwide suffers from the disorder. 

Smartphone App tracks eyes to detect signs of autism in children

The developed autism tracking software which is installed on smartphones, tablets, phablets an/or PCs detects the neurodegenerative disorder in children as young as two years old and thus can significantly improve the benefits of treatment.

The Autism spectrum disorder is rarely noticeable in children, until such a child is enrolled in school, however with this new app early detection of the disorder is attained and according to researchers the earlier the diagnosis, the better. 

Quoting Kathy Ralabate Doody, Assistant Professor at SUNY Buffalo State College, US:

“Although it’s never too late to start therapy, research demonstrates the earlier we diagnose, the better our outcomes,” 
The study found that the app tracks eye movements of a child looking at photos of social scenes, which evokes the most dramatic differences in eye movement between children with and without Autism spectrum disorder.
The eye tracking patterns of children with Autism spectrum disorder looking at the photos are scattered while with children without Autism spectrum disorder, the eye tracking patterns is more focused.

The use of the app takes less than 60 seconds in which diagnosis is made with an accuracy ratung of 93.96% recorded after using the app on 32 children (with age range of 2-10).
