Title: First Impressions Matter: Social judgments, gaze patterns, and facial movements of adolescents with and without ASD
Abstract: We quickly form first impressions during social interactions. In the case of encounters with individuals on the autism spectrum (ASD), those first impressions are often negative. In this talk I will present data and research questions regarding the formation of those first impressions, the gaze patterns to individuals with and without ASD, and the facial expression movements that may underly that first impression formation.
