Eye Contact Triggers Threat Signals In Autistic Children's Brains

Eye Contact Triggers Threat Signals In Autistic Children's Brains | Technology - Autism | Scoop.it
Brain tests at the University of Wisconsin-Madison suggest that autistic children shy from eye contact because they perceive even the most familiar face as an uncomfortable threat. The work deepens understanding of an autistic brain's function and may one day inform new treatment approaches and augment how teachers interact with their autistic students.

Emma Lacey's curator insight, May 31, 2014 2:13 AM

This is a great article for teachers to use to reflect on how they use technology in the curriculum. It encourages teachers to consider if technology is used to its full potential. Teachers also need to think about if the technology they are using helps or hinders students education, technology should be used for a purpose and not simply for the sake of it. By thinking about how not to use technology, teachers can then consider how they should be using it.
