My name is Kayley Ting and I am a student at The Academy for Gifted Children- P.A.C.E. I have a passion for all areas of science and in particular, learning about disabilities and the ways in which we can overcome them. Throughout my high school career, I have had the opportunity to engage in my varying fields of interest including medicine, math and statistical analysis, and programming. I think the best part about applying science is that it gives us the ability to combine discoveries from different fields. Science experiments empower us to find a need in our world and be a part of its solution. In the development of my project, I studied autism and neurodevelopment disorders, I learned about circuits, and studied the way the sympathetic nervous system works. With further research, I hope to apply my findings towards the creation of a wearable device that could assist individuals with autism.

Analysis of Electrodermal Activity to Quantify Stress Levels in Autism
City:Richmond Hill, ON
School:Academy for Gifted Children - P.A.C.E.
Abstract:My objective is to establish a method by which skin resistance readings can serve as early warning signs of a sensory meltdown in autism. Through monitoring electrodermal activity, I hope to quantify the severity and degrees of stress indicative of sensory overload. These findings can be applied to the development of a wearable device to assist individuals with autism.
