Publication Date: 2006
Article describes a computer-based system that helps children with autism to focus their attention on a specific task. Each task is fit to each child, reproducible, and adaptable. The system provides the child with personalized activities in the form of educational games, taking into account age, ability, and degree of autism. In order to focus a child’s attention on the relevant object, the system displays or plays specific stimulus; symbol or sound represents an emotional and satisfaction value for the child. The system collects the child’s reactions to such stimulus in order to understand his behavior and responds in real time to the child’s reactions using adequate actions that consider the expert’s directives and the child’s profile.
