Emotion Recognition (EMREC): The personalized future of autism therapy

Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) have deficits in emotion recognition abilities. This leads to uncomfortable social situations, anxiety, depression, and even suicide. We propose a new approach to personalized, always-on therapy for kids and teenagers with ASD based on novel wearable, smart electronic devices. EMREC will improve the lives of individuals with ASD by providing personalized and engaging therapy, and by revealing new patterns of emotion recognition deficiencies.
