Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) are a triad of disturbances affecting the areas of communication, social interaction and behavior. In educational contexts, without appropriate intervention methodologies, these limitations can be deeply disabling. Our research promotes the communicative competence of children with ASDs It extends the current(More)
above gives c 2 = 2c 1 =(c 1 +(2?c 1)). Clearly, c 2 is proportional to the reciprocal of the ratio. Thus, when is small, can be taken larger than when is large. This may be used to evolve the network eeciently in the beginning and slow it down later, while ensuring that 2-cycles are never retrieved. Neurons with graded response have collective(More)
We study the existence and stability of pulse stationary solutions of an integro-differential equation modelling the coarse-grained averaged activity of a single layer of interconnected neurons. The neuronal connections considered are laterally oscilla-tory with an exponential rate of decay and variable phase. We identify regions in the parameter space(More)
We study an integro-differential equation defined on a spatially extended domain, proposed in the literature as a model of short term memory. Previous researchers have established necessary conditions for the existence of two-bump stationary solutions of this equation when considering a Heaviside firing rate function and a coupling function of " Mexican hat(More)
This paper describes a framework, devised for rapid application development, and rapid application customization of standalone multimedia and rich content software, targeted at students with special needs. We present a proof-of-concept software application for promotion and training of social communication skills in children with autism spectrum disorders.(More)
