Autism and Developmental Disorders Lab

Human Movement Performance Lab

 

People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have known differences in eye and body movement. In our lab, we seek to understand how the visual and motor systems work together to produce functional behaviors. Some of these behaviors include walking, aiming, and moving the body to intercept or avoid objects.

Our mission is to partner with the ASD community to ask the right questions in our research, develop meaningful solutions to challenges that affect quality of life, and offer support to families or individuals who are looking for resources. We want to promote acceptance, understanding, and hope for those with developmental differences.

Just for fun, try some balance and coordination activities at home!  Think about how your eyes are helping you move:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yuVkkhpiHTA
