This research is being conducted by Sarah Tuberman, a student in the Clinical Psychology Program at Alliant International University and supervised by Dr. Alan Lincoln at California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, San Diego.

You are invited to take part in a study about how young children look at objects and their hands/fingers. I am trying to learn whether special ways of paying attention to objects and hands/fingers might be linked with later autism symptoms and daily functioning. The purpose of the research is to learn about a variety of early gaze behaviors are linked to autism symptoms and daily functioning.

Parents of children who have a diagnosis of autism as well as parents of children who do not have a history of autism are welcome to participate.
