Assessing Social Cognition in Autistic Youths and Adults

The goal of the project is to develop a series of standardized, performance-based computerized assessment tools for use in the examination of social cognition deficits in ASD. Drawing on the available experimental literature a number of potential assessment tasks will be identified, reviewed and configured for computer-based administration to children / youth with ASD. Programming of assessments will be followed by pilot testing, evaluation and validation in ASD and control children/youth. Key findings from analyses will be used to formulate recommendations regarding subtest modifications, inclusion and additional measures
