Care Improving Cognition for ADolescents on the Autism Spectrum

Recruiting

This is a validation study to evaluate the acceptability, feasibility and impact of CICADAS (Care Improving Cognition for ADolescents on the Autism Spectrum), a clinician-assisted, mobile application that aims to prime the brain to engage in flexible, adaptive long-term learning about social-emotional events through closed-loop technology. The goal of this study is to evaluate the CICADAS app in adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
