Abstract—Autism is a disorder of neural development which affects about one in every 150 kids on average. Autism deals with major complexities regarding social communication and retention power. Now days, due to the increased use of the computer, the technology is being used to assist the treatment and to interact with an autistic child. To make the learning environment more attractive, the animated pictures are used in the applications. In this paper a gaming model is proposed which will first teach basic traffic rules to Autistic children with the help of some animated videos and then help them decide what action must be taken in certain situations thus increasing their intelligibility. The use of tangible objects is introduced so as to keep the sessions more interesting for autistic children.
Index Terms—Autism, autism spectrum disorders, game based approach and traffic rules for autistic children.
