Computer vision technology has a unique opportunity to impact that study of children’s behavior, by providing a means to automatically capture behavioral data in an noninvasive manner and analyze behavioral interactions between children and their caregivers and peers. We briefly outline a research agenda in Behavior Imaging, which targets the capture and analysis of social and communicative behaviors. We present illustrative results from an on-going project on the content-based retrieval of… Expand
Towards Automated Video Analysis of Sensorimotor Assessment Data
TLDR
A computer vision approach is discussed to prospect precise behavior information from the available visual data acquired throughout assessment sessions to contribute to a better understanding of autism spectrum disorders. Expand
Computer Vision Techniques for Autism Symptoms Detection and Recognition: A Survey.
TLDR
A medical assisting computer vision-based framework is proposed to detect observable autism symptoms and utilises recent and efficient techniques that can be used to produce accurate diagnosing results. Expand
An Ecological Visual Exploration Tool to Support the Analysis of Visual Processing Pathways in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders
TLDR
An algorithm for free gaze estimation is employed, which allows the user to freely rotate the head in the field of view of the sensor, and it is insensitive to the presence of eyeglasses, hats or particular hairstyles, making this technique particularly suitable to be used in the critical context of autism.

  • 2019 IEEE 29th International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing (MLSP)
  • 2019
TLDR
This paper implemented a computer vision based automatic ASD prediction approach to detect autistic characteristics in a video dataset recorded from a mix of children with and without ASD. Expand
Computer vision in autism spectrum disorder research: a systematic review of published studies from 2009 to 2019
TLDR
The findings in this review suggest that computer vision analysis is useful for the quantification of behavioural/biological markers which can further lead to a more objective analysis in autism research. Expand
Paired robotic devices to mediate and represent social behaviors
TLDR
A system composed of multiple spherical devices, as well as the design of a turn taking activity using those devices, which could successfully collect quantitative data that represent turn taking aswell as observe how does the boy manipulate and interact with the device. Expand
Automatic Detection of ADHD and ASD from Expressive Behaviour in RGBD Data
TLDR
This work presents a novel methodology to aid diagnostic predictions about the presence/absence of ADHD and ASD by automatic visual analysis of a persons behaviour by using state of the art facial expression analysis based on Dynamic Deep Learning and 3D analysis of behaviour. Expand
An approach to facilitate turn-taking behavior with paired devices for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
A model using paired devices with three different interaction rules made to facilitate turn-taking behaviors is proposed, using identical spherical devices with simple visual cues designed to mediate turn- taking interaction between children and therapists. Expand
Assisting, Not Training, Autistic Children to Recognize and Share Each Other's Emotions via Automatic Face-Tracking in a Collaborative Play Environment
TLDR
This paper offers a collaborative play environment to inform autistic children each other’s emotions with an aim to engage them happily and with much less stress. Expand
Non-intrusive and calibration free visual exploration analysis in children with autism spectrum disorder
Assistive technology is a generic system that is used to increase, help or improve the functional capabilities of people with disability. Recently, its employment has generated innovative solutionsExpand

Autism During Infancy: A Retrospective Video Analysis of Sensory-Motor and Social Behaviors at 9–12 Months of Age
  • G. Baranek
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Journal of autism and developmental disorders
  • 1999
TLDR
The findings indicate that subtle symptoms of autism are present at 9–12 months, and suggest that early assessment procedures need to consider sensory processing/sensory-motor functions in addition to social responses during infancy. Expand
What are infant siblings teaching us about autism in infancy?

  • 2009
TLDR
Contrary to current views that autism is a disorder that profoundly affects social development from the earliest months of life, the data from these studies presents a picture of autism as a disorder involving symptoms across multiple domains with a gradual onset that changes both ongoing developmental rate and established behavioral patterns across the first two years of life.

Autism Spectrum Disorders: Early Detection, Intervention, Education, and Psychopharmacological Management
TLDR
It is concluded from the review of the evidence that, in the absence of additional, more compelling data, the clinical usefulness of existing screening instruments remains questionable. Expand
Randomized, Controlled Trial of an Intervention for Toddlers With Autism: The Early Start Denver Model
TLDR
This is the first randomized, controlled trial to demonstrate the efficacy of a comprehensive developmental behavioral intervention for toddlers with ASD for improving cognitive and adaptive behavior and reducing severity of ASD diagnosis. Expand
Temporal causality for the analysis of visual events
TLDR
A spectral version of the pairwise test for Granger causality is used to identify patterns of interactions between words and group them into independent causal sets, demonstrating semantically-meaningful groupings that lead to improved performance in retrieving and classifying social games from unstructured videos. Expand
Identifying Infants and Young Children With Developmental Disorders in the Medical Home: An Algorithm for Developmental Surveillance and Screening
TLDR
The authors recommend that developmental surveillance be incorporated at every well-child preventive care visit, and children diagnosed with developmental disorders should be identified as children with special health care needs, and chronic-condition management should be initiated. Expand
Quasi-periodic event analysis for social game retrieval
TLDR
Promising results are demonstrated in retrieving social games from unstructured, lab-recorded footage of children's play, and identifying social interactions in a dataset of approximately 3.75 hours of home movies. Expand

TLDR
This work builds on the idea of the Harris and Forstner interest point operators and detects local structures in space-time where the image values have significant local variations in both space and time to detect spatio-temporal events. Expand
CareLog: a selective archiving tool for behavior management in schools
TLDR
The design process that led to five design principles that governed the development of CareLog are described and results from a five-month, quasi-controlled study aimed at validating those design principles are presented. Expand
