Researchers have developed a new technology that uses the vocal recordings of children to assess their speech patterns and helps in identifying who has autism spectrum disorder or language delay, according to a report.
The new tool could have an impact on how children are screened for autism, language delay, and other developmental disorders.
The tool is a battery-powered device that attaches to children’s clothing. Known as the LENA (Language Environment Analysis) system, it works by recording children’s utterances, from infant cooing to preschoolers speaking words, and then analyzes these utterances for speech patterns and characteristics to create a vocal profile.
