Children with autism spectrum disorders tend to be behind in social development. Early care is thought that can expect more improvement of social development. We have started experiments that measure at 1 year 6 months old children medical checkup, Gaze Point Sensing System"GazeFinder" detect a risk as early as possible, and connect to early care.

Comments from a joint researcher
Children with autism, starting in infancy, exhibit tendencies to not look at other people's eyes and to look for repetitive patterns and designs rather than people. I expect that this social developmental evaluation equipment "GazeFinder" support objective check of developmental disorders by introducing.
