Anxiety Meter for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

The Anxiety Meter is a smart device that can objectively measure anxiety levels and ultimately lead to a more effective treatment for a broader and more diverse population of individuals with ASD. This includes minimally verbal and lower-functioning individuals who currently have limited or no access to evidence-based anxiety treatments.
