Autism and Beyond

Autism and Beyond was Duke's first ResearchKit app, released in 2015. The goal of the study was to test the reliability of smart phone questionnaires and video analysis of facial expressions as a possible screening tool for autism and other developmental disorders of children.

The study has since closed and is planning for a second iteration.
