Deviant gaze patterns have been observed in Children with autism. This information inspired Nielson to look into the following research questions in her study: 1) Is there a correlation between autism, visual tracking disturbances, and question responses? 2) Can differences be observed between a child with autism and a child without, as measured by the Unique Learning System (ULS)?
Rachel Nielson, 30, is senior at Flagler College with a dual major in Elementary and Exceptional Student Education. Her primary interest is in better understanding how she can help students who either don’t fit very well into, or are excluded from, regular education settings. Her goal as a future educator is to offer students with social and academic guidance that will better enable them to reach their full potential.
