Abstract
demonstrate the particularities of visual scanning in ASD individuals. In this
study, in order to compare two situations, a group of Asperger’s individuals and
a control group were subject to experimental conditions: a static and a dynamic
situation. The goal was to first compare the visual scanning between the two
groups and then to compare the visual scanning of the Asperger’s group within
each condition. We hypothesized that the visual scanning of the Asperger’s
group would be different in the dynamic situation, compared to the norm.
Results: We found a significant difference in visual scanning between the
Asperger’s group and the control group in both experimental conditions. These
results demonstrate the particularities of visual scanning in individuals with
Asperger’s syndrome.
Conclusion: According to our results, individuals diagnosed with an
ASD have difficulties when confronted with dynamic stimuli. We were able to
demonstrate that Asperger’s individuals use their peripheral vision regardless
the kind of stimuli. We were also able to conclude that eye-tracking is an
effective aid in screening for ASDs.
