Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this work, a novel technological approach to the early diagnosis of neuro-developmental disorders is presented. Disorders such as Autism are typically diagnosed after language development, i.e. after the 2-3 years of age. In this paper, three different typologies of instruments are presented which are designed to assess infants behavior in different perceptual and motor domains. The first is an instrumented toy embedding kinematic and force sensors for studying grasping and manipulation in infants as young as 6 months old. The second is a wearable device for sensing the kinematics of the upper and lower limbs of infants, designed to assess spontaneous movements in premature babies. The third is a multimodal audio-visuo-vestibular cap which was designed to assess infants orienting behaviors in social situations in response to audio and visual stimuli.
