The PNLab uses different experimental approaches to characterize the perceptual processing that explains cognition and sensory-related behaviors in autism and other neurodevelopmental conditions at different periods of development.


Based on these findings, we are developing vision-based cognitive assessment and intervention protocols that are accessible, adaptable and specific to the perceptual strengths of young people with autism.


As founding director, Dr. Bertone also works closely with the Centre d'Études de Recherche, d'Éducation et Formation (SCERT), a research center located at Le Sommet school, a state-of-the-art special education environment for over 600 students (ages 4 to 21). Our work aims to increase the effectiveness of existing interventions by addressing perceptual strengths in autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) across the developmental spectrum.
