That is an interesting video! Jim Tanaka from the University of Victoria explains how he got into Autism studies and how they led to the development of facial recognition games for kids on the spectrum.
By the way, Aspies, are you looking for something to do? Would you like to participate in some current university research? If you live in B.C.s lower mainland, you’re in luck!
Subjects aka participants are being recruited for a joint SFU/UBC study into the difference in visual perception between those with and those without ASD.
The researchers are looking for adults, that is, people 18 and over, with an ASD diagnosis. They would also like the parent or caregiver to attend.
