Augmented Interaction Systems for Supporting Autistic Children. Evolution of a Multichannel Expressive Tool: The SEMI Project Feasibility Study
An integrated system based on multimedia and augmented interaction technologies has been tested on young subjects with ASD and dyspraxia in the age range of 6–10 years, in charge for rehabilitation treatments; a team of clinical psychologists has analyzed the results of the experimentation.


Interactive robots for communication-care: a case-study in autism therapy
A small creature-like robot, Keepon, is built, which was carefully designed to get autistic and non-autistic children involved in playful interaction, and it is found that Keepon's simple appearance and predictable responses gave the autistic children a playful and relaxed mood.
Attention analysis in interactive software for children with autism
The platform the authors developed helps children with autism to focus their attention on a specific task and helps children to categorize elementary perception (strong, smooth, quick, slow, big, small...).
Acquisition of social abilities through musical tangible user interface: children with autism spectrum condition and the reactable
The results show an increase in social interaction during the sessions, even for the non-verbal subjects, and qualitative methodological tools for analysis of outlier subjects and detection of atypical behavior for future research are used.
