PIIN Biosensors Review

The PIIN Biosensor Review is a cross-lab collaboration working in efforts to gather articles involving Angelman Syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. This review requires evaluating articles that provide key data on these disorders using wearable sensors that detect movement, heart rate, and various other biological data from participants. The review seeks to gather information that can assist in the development of more accurate and accommodating devices for these communities.

Inclusion in 4-H for Youth on the Autism Spectrum

The 4-H inclusion project is about promoting inclusion in 4-H with youth on the spectrum. This project has gathered information from the educators and leaders in 4-H, the parents of youth on the spectrum who have participated in 4-H, and the youth on the spectrum who have participated. This project has sought to find any challenges or barriers these different groups may face and possible solutions to these challenges. This knowledge will be used to increase inclusion and make 4-H more accessible to everyone.

Parent Early Intervention Study

The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) is a parent-mediated intervention for children with autism between the ages of 12-48 months. In this study, parents who participated in a remote version of the program were interviewed about their experiences. The purpose of the study is to better conceptualize the parents’ perceived feasibility, acceptability, and stress levels before and after implementation of the ESDM intervention.
