Welcome to the

SAGA PROJECT

Serious Games for Adolescents with Autism

The SAGA Project is an NIH-funded study under Dr. Suzy Scherf at the Penn State lab of Developmental Neuroscience. SAGA is a randomized clinical trial that uses serious game technology. The goal is to help develop social skills in adolescents with autism. 

After an initial visit at Penn State University Park, our participants take home a laptop and play our video game for three months. Families come back two times for testing.
