Can Google Glass Help Autistic Children Navigate Emotions?


In an article published earlier this week, The New York Times took a look at how Google Glass might have a second life as a device that helps autistic children practice eye contact and navigate others' emotions. A clinical trial conducted by Catalin Voss, a Ph.D. student, and Dennis Wall, a Stanford professor with specialization in autism research, found that autistic children who used their software for Google Glass "showed a significant gain on the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales, a standard tool for tracking the behavior of those on the autism spectrum," according to The Times. The trial was conducted over two years and included 71 children with various forms of autism. For the full story on how Google Glass can help children with autism, head over to The New York Times
