Personalized Model of an Interactive System for Improving the Pronunciation Skills in Autistic Children

Rohit Rathore, Priyamvada Singh, and R. H. Goudar

Abstract—The three major problems identified in the children suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorders are -learning difficulties, communication problems and social interaction problems. The social interaction problems and communication problems further hinder the learning abilities of autistic children. In addition to the special methodologies and techniques that should be employed in designing the effective learning solutions for autistic children, a high degree of personalization is also required, as the problems and learning requirements vary greatly from child to child. This paper focuses on the pronunciation problem which is different for each autistic individual, hence a personalized model of an interactive system is proposed for improving the pronunciation of words in children suffering from Autism Spectrum Disorders, that takes into account the custom needs of the children.

Index Terms—Autism, autism spectrum disorders, virtual avatar, speech-to-text conversion.
