Hey Toddler Toddler fans! Will you help this study for early detection of develomental delays?

I received this from Jena at Harvard Medical School…please help if you can. Thanks!

Harvard Puzzle Mouse ProjectHarvard Researchers Invite Families to Test Drive ‘PuzzleMouse’

Unique online diagnostic method asks parents to answer ten questions and upload short home video; more families needed to participate

Do you have a child who is between 14 months and 7 years of age? If yes, our team at Harvard Medical School would love your help with our research project. Our goal is to bridge the gap between the first signs of a developmental delay and an appointment with a diagnostic specialist.

At the Wall Lab, we’re developing online, machine-learning methods that could help reduce the time gap between a parent’s first recognition of a developmental concern to the time they are seen by diagnostic specialists. We are testing the effectiveness of our technology through our PuzzleMouse Project. This project asks parents to complete a short questionnaire and upload a brief video of their child interacting with others in a natural environment – for instance at home or on a playdate.

From this information, our machine-learning methods produce risk assessments in minutes rather than hours. Based on our preliminary analyses, it has an accuracy greater than 92 percent when compared to a gold-standard clinical diagnosis.

If the accuracy is confirmed through further testing, we see great potential for using the assessment to shorten the time between initial concern and early intervention for developmental delays. Detect early. Intervene early!

We are now just months away from completing a mobile version of our system for rapid detection of autism. But we need your help! Please consider participating in our study by following this link to our website. We are highly seeking children without a developmental delay (controls for the study) and that is why we are reaching out to you! As a parent and participant, you can make a difference for countless children and families going through the diagnostic process in the years to come.

Just to summarize, your participation will include:

Submitting a short survey: You will complete ten questions about your child’s day-to-day behavior.

Uploading a 2- to 5- minute video: It should show your child in a social situation such as a birthday party, playdate or even a day at the park with your family.

Thanks so much!
