This site started off as the public face of a single research project, called Click-East. However now it plays host to a group of research projects and related information. Projects on this site include:
- CLICK-EAST stands for ‘Computer-based Learning in Children: the Edinburgh Autism Social-attention Trial’. The CLICK-EAST project is a research study which has developed a new iPad App for children with autism, designed to help them learn and practice basic social and communication skills in a fun way.
- TUKS is the “Taiwan-United Kingdom Siblings Project”. This project is a large-scale questionnaire based study which is looking at cultural differences in how young people are affected when they have a brother or sister on the autism spectrum.
- Infant Lab is hosting a wide-ranging set of associated projects looking at development of babies in their first year of life. We are using eye-tracking to understand learning and social behaviour at this young age. We are currently recruiting babies aged 6-12 months for this project, and later we’ll be working with infants born pre-term and other children who experience complications in pregnancy or at birth. The goal is to understand early development better and therefore provide targeted help to infants who need it.
- AWARE was a one-day knowledge exchange event held in Edinburgh in September 2012. The focus was on the design, implementation and dissemination of technologies for people with autism spectrum disorders.
