Gillian Hayes’ and STAR’s work was featured in UCI’s Calit2 Newsroom in an article on Technology and Autism!

Hayes, whose primary academic appointment is in Informatics (she also has appointments in education and pediatrics) told this week’s SURF-IT seminar series lunchtime audience that available services for those with autism are not keeping pace with the massive increase in the number of diagnoses. While extra funding would certainly help, “We hope technology can bridge some of this gap,” she said.
