End date: 05/2011

Description: This research project aims to develop a mobile ICT solution to help teenagers with an autism diagnosis (ASD) to become better integrated in society. A toolset based on new research from Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) will be developed to support them in handling situations where they have to act autonomously, as well as to develop their social skills and self management skills. In addition to knowledge from Cognitive Psychology and Pedagogical research, the emerging Persuasive Technology will be used as a key component and will be validated, with its special advantages related to motivation, which are critical for autism-diagnosed individuals.
