Enhancing Precision of Behavioral Measurement for Assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorder

Friday, January 20, 2023 · 11:30 am - 1:00 pm EDT
In-Person & Online Event

Presented by Somer Bishop, PhD, University of California, San Francisco

This lecture will discuss several recent studies pertaining to measurement of behavioral phenotypes in individuals with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs). The developmental nature of social-communication, including its close association with cognitive and language ability, poses a particular challenge for measuring behavior in this domain. Potential strategies for improving measurement of social-communication, as well as other autism-related phenotypes, will be discussed. Ultimately, new tools will be required to adequately capture between- and within- person differences and change in children with NDDs for clinical and research purposes.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify common challenges in measurement of ASD-associated behavioral phenotypes
  • Identify limitations of currently available tools used in clinical and research assessment
  • Understand potential measurement strategies for managing heterogeneity in clinical and research settings
