Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is an umbrella term for neurodevelopmental disabilities that affect social and communication skills, and in recent years, the trend toward escalating prevalence is seen. In children with ASD, outcome prediction is a vital component of planning behavioral interventions, treatment, and also prognosis in clinical settings. This chapter concerns the outcome of children and babies with ASD in later life, focusing on new biomedical research and also state-of-the-art techniques that are multidisciplinary between engineering and clinical research. Major trends and challenges of this research and methods for children with ASD in laboratory, clinical, and real-life settings will be discussed.
