Based on a scientific report[www.nature.com] published by Nature group[www.nature.com], Autism could be diagnosed earlier before obvious symptoms are shown, by allowing children to play video games on smart phones and tablets that require some hand gestures.
"This is potentially a major breakthrough for early identification of autism, because no stressful and expensive tests by clinicians are needed," Dr Jonathan Delafield-Butt (one of the researchers and a senior lecturer in child development) said.
He (also) said (that) this new "serious game" assessment offered a cheaper, faster, fun way of testing for autism but added that more work was needed to confirm this finding, and to test for its limitations.
Movement data were gathered from 37 children with autism, aged between 3 and 6. They were asked to play games on smart tablet computers with touch-sensitive screens and embedded movement sensors.
"It is not social, emotional, or cognitive aspects of the gameplay that identify autism. Rather, the key difference is in the way children with autism move their hands as they touch, swipe, and gesture with the iPad during the game.
