Eye-Tracking for Earlier Diagnoses!

In THIS article on NeuroDevNet offers information on a new kind of test that can aid in early diagnoses of FASD (and therefore, more supports sooner!).  The studies that are taking place right now are looking at how subtle movements in focus and control of the eye are related to and demonstrate ability in executive functioning in FASD-confirmed patients.  The upshot of the studies may be earlier identification of people who may benefit from “more comprehensive evaluation.”  The authors of the study indicate that adding eye-movement tests to evaluations of potentially FASD or FAE patients could reduce costs and allow for earlier interventions.
