Problems with joint attention are core features ofautism spectrum disorders. Here, we investigated changes in thepupil diameter of children with ASD and typically developingchildren, when they initiate joint attention with a gaze contingentavatar. 31 participants with ASD and 33 TD matched controls,directed the avatar’s gaze to face images. We sought to use thepupil diameter as a metric to differentiate these two groups.We will show the difference in pupil behaviour through anunsupervised k-means classification.
