Deformable musical surfaces for children with autism

Compared to other populations, individuals with autism tend to have more challenges with processing sensory input as well as motor coordination. In general, children with autism exhibit numerous sensorimotor impairments and may have poor motor control defaulting their ability to appropriately redirect their movements to respond to sensory stimuli. For example, when children with autism...

Collaborative exergames on interactive floors for young children

In Mexico, 34% of children are obese and overweight. During the last years, the incidence of obesity and overweight in young children (2 – 4 years old) is growing up. Sedentary lifestyles, poor nutrition, and lack of exercise adherence affect young children quality life, and motor skills development. Appropriate exercise adherence is important to help...

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...
