Newcastle families! Are you a parent of a primary school aged child? Our researchers are leading a study aimed at designing a game-like app for facial emotion recognition to support social communication difficulties.
We are investigating the different ways autistic and non-autistic children might interpret facial expressions after playing a tablet-based game. The study involves various assessments including characteristics associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder, social development, EEG recordings, and we will record eye movements whilst your child looks at photos of children showing different facial expressions (e.g., happy, angry, neutral).
