We support assessments for children and families at the Brain and Mind Centre, working alongside private clinical services such as The Houghton Clinic, as well as through our partnerships with public child development services, such as the Sydney Children's Hospital Network (SCHN). By collaborating with other clinics, universities, government, and industry, we also develop and trial novel ways to capture data, which reduce the burden on the patient and better reflect their experience.
Exploring an AI-assisted technology for social and adaptive functioning
We have partnered with technology company Akin, adults with intellectual disabilities and parents of children with neurodevelopmental conditions to
explore an AI-assisted digital technology that can track and support social and adaptive functioning
in daily life.
Child and adult assessments for autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions
All of the assessments conducted at CAN Research form part of our research programs. To find out more about standalone assessments for autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions at the Brain and Mind Centre, visit The Houghton Clinic.
Understanding the needs of children and families attending assessment services
Our studies have explored the diverse diagnostic and practical needs of children and families presenting to neurodevelopmental assessment clinics across Sydney. By better understanding needs and challenges, we can find new ways to improve assessments.
