If you have a child with or without autism, you can help change the way autism is diagnosed by just sending in a brief video clip to the Harvard Autworks Video project headed by Dr. Dennis Wall, the lead investigator on the project."The Harvard Autworks Video Project needs over a thousand video clips of children with and without autism," says Dr. Dennis Wall, lead investigator on the project.
His team is trained in autism diagnosis and has made their scoring rubric as accurate as the traditional scoring instruments for autism such as the ADI-R (Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised).
