Short Project Description
Seattle Children’s Innovative Technologies Lab (SCITL), directed by Dr. Frederick Shic , is dedicated to developing everyday technologies for improving the lives of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities.
Areas of work include biomarker development – primarily using eye tracking and near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) – to track the effects of treatment, understand developmental and behavioral heterogeneity, and to predict clinical outcomes. We are also developing innovative technologies including mobile apps, video games, robots, smart toys and virtual reality, to enable next-generation sensing and therapeutics.
We are looking for interns that are interested in working at the intersection of developmental and clinical psychology, child health and social neuroscience.
