Measurement, Autism, & Child Development Lab

Welcome to the MAC Lab!

The goal of the MAC Lab is to improve outcomes for people on the autism spectrum by conducting research that tackles questions at multiple levels of analysis. This means using many different strategies to measure, predict, and understand the variability observed in development. Our techniques include using video to measure attention, physiology to measure responses to different experiences, observations to measure behavior, and parent and self-report to measure individual experiences. We use these techniques to examine both basic mechanisms and also experiences and outcomes currently faced by children and their families in the community.
