Thank you for your feedback. However, there have been a number of researchers who have used cellular technology, Fitbits, and actigraphs when working with children with autism. Upon further literature search, our team has not found empirical support for your perspective. The studies you listed above do not seem to review Fitbit technology directly, but more broadly radio-wave technology.

Michael, those consulted for this project were professionals in the field or parents of autistic children. Thank you for the insight.

Hi Michael. I sent my project to an autism awareness group in Philadelphia. Some of the members read it over and agreed with the design of this study. Additionally, I have a cousin with ASD and other family members who work with developmentally disabled adults (a few of which are diagnosed with ASD.) We believe this project has the potential to make a great impact on the population.
