Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is estimated to affect 1 in 68 individuals in the US and is characterized in part by impairments in social reciprocity. We collected physiology data from 30 children with and without ASD during social interaction with an adult. Significant correlations were found between adult-child physiological interdependence and standard measures of social functioning.
