Liang, J., Wilkinson, K., & Regiec, C. (November 12, 2015). Gaze Toward Social Interactions in Photographs by Individuals with Autism: Implications for AAC Design. Poster presentation at ASHA: Denver, Colorado.
It is possible that visual scene displays containing human figures might provoke gaze avoidance in individuals with autism. Eye-tracking technology was used to evaluate gaze of individuals with and without a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder towards photographs containing interacting or non-interacting humans. Degree of social demand was associated with gaze behaviors.
