MCP Presents "Screenagers"

We are pleased to offer a second showing of this important documentary! 

Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that happening with her own kids and began a quest to uncover how it might affect their development. As with her other two award-winning documentaries on mental health, Ruston takes a deeply personal approach as she probes into the vulnerable corners of family life, including her own, to explore struggles over social media, video games, academics, and internet addiction. Through poignant and unexpectedly funny stories, along with surprising insights from authors, psychologists, and brain scientists, "SCREENAGERS" reveals how tech time impacts kids’ development and also offers solutions on how adults can empower their kids to best navigate the digital world to find balance.

This is an intimate screening of this movie, and space is limited. Please RSVP here.

Autism technology presentation

You are cordially invited to attend a special demonstration from two of Stanford University's Clinical Study Managers, Jessey Schwartz and Jena Daniels. They will be presenting the Autism Glass Project, an innovative research study that aims to validate the efficacy of a novel learning aid, which runs on Google Glass, for children with autism who struggle with social interactions and emotion recognition. The aid leverages Glass's outward facing camera and a machine-learning emotion classifier to read facial expressions and provide feedback cues in real-time to the child wearing the Glass. The learning aid has been tested and designed with over twenty families to integrate seamlessly into daily routines. The Autism Glass Project seeks volunteers for the study and is excited to partner with you in hopes to find interested families!

The Wall Lab is moving ahead with Phase II of its research and is looking for participants between the ages of 6-12 years old with a clinical diagnosis of ASD, who receive ABA therapy at least twice per week. The trial aims to look at the behavioral progression during a 3-month period.

Please RVSP here to hold a space.
