About 80% of children with autism have deficits in visual-motor integration skills. Visual-motor integration is defined as the degree to which visual perception and body movements, including the movements of arms and legs, are well coordinated. The deficits in visual-motor integration could minimize children with autism´s opportunities to participate in team sports and limit their […]

Interactive sonification of movement trajectories during motor therapies
Interactive sonification is an effective tool used to guide individuals when practicing movements. Little research has explore the affordances of continous and discrete sound structures in supporting motor therapeutic interventions for children with autism who exhibit motor impairments. The goal of this research is to study if children with autism understand the use of such […]

Bolita – An inclusive voice assistant to support language therapy
Voice Assistants have shifted the way we communicate with ubiquitous services by enabling the use of natural language communication and the analysis of acoustic and linguistic language patterns. Speech skills of children are not yet fully developed; therefore, most conversational agents frequently misunderstand them. Bolita (i.e., “little ball” in Spanish), is a bilingual conversational agent that […]
VANS – Virtual Autonomic Nervous System
Stress is a reaction of the body to external challenges, whether physical or psychological. In sports, there are stress factors that affect the athlete’s performance, especially American football, because it is a team sport that involves short, high-intensity exercise cycles followed by a short recovery period. The lack of stress regulation mechanisms can be detrimental […]
