Movement-based interactions supporting sensory impairments

Movement-based interactions supporting sensory impairments

 private webpage:  Children with autism have sensory processing disorders impairing their ability of having awareness of their body and movements  so they frequently exhibit “atypical” body-interactions they use as “compensatory movements” helping them to have some sense of agency when interacting with the world.  In this project, we explore how tangible computing could offer to children...
Autism Technology Showcase

Autism Technology Showcase

Last weekend (December 8, 2012) we were invited to participate in the first Autism Technology Showcase hosted by the UC Irvine Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences, and For OC Kids Neurodevelopmental Center. This Showcase aim to bring together researchers, practitioners, students, teachers and families devoted to support individuals with autism. For around...

MobIS

private webpage:  Autism is associated with impairments of attention, memory and information processing. For children with autism impairments there is difficult to remember and identify real objects. Teachers prompt children with autism to redirect their attention to the object discrimination training and reduce the time they spend “off task”. Technological interventions that provide interactive visual supports help teachers...
MOSOCO

MOSOCO

Autism is characterized by social skills impairments. Children with autism exhibit problems when initiating and terminating interactions, learning the interests of others, and joining social groups. Direct instructions for skill acquisition are an effective way to teach them social skills, helping to cope with these social challenges.   The Social Compass curriculum is a behavioral...

CleanBook

private webpage:  Interventions to support individuals with autism to provide step-by-step guidance often involve the use visual supports (i.e., those things we see that enhance the communication process) that sometimes use words, images, or tangible objects to represent activities that will take place (or have taken place) arranged in temporal order. A special type of...
Things that think (T3)

Things that think (T3)

 private webpage:  Cognitive therapies use traditional objects to teach children with autism age appropriate cognitive skills. During cognitive therapies children with autism often loose attention, and caregivers invest a lot of time in engaging them with the therapy providing frequent prompting while maintaining a detailed record of children’s progress, and number of given prompts. To...
