Autism scan unveiled at launch of transformative hub – Flinders University

Flinders University Eye Scan Detects Autism in Children
Dr Paul Constable, with young patient Declan, will further his research under the Caring Futures Institute.

A promising new method to detect autism in children through a simple eye scan aims to identify the condition years earlier than is currently possible.

The possible biomarker for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) also has implications for early detection of other disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, says lead researcher Dr Paul Constable from Flinders University’s College of Nursing and Health Sciences.

The project is one of many unveiled at the launch of the the new Caring Futures Institute at Flinders University.
