Promoting sharing behaviours in children through the use of a customised novel computer system

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    Asperger Syndrome is a condition on the Autism Spectrum, characterised by a lack of ability to recognise and understand the thoughts, beliefs, desires and intentions of others. Thus, the ability to make sense of others' behaviours and predict their social actions is reduced.

    This paper aims to develop a technology-enhanced learning environment in which children with Asperger Syndrome can explore and improve their sharing skills. This may increase their social awareness and interaction. The system is scenario-based, with each scenario focussing on a specific aspect of sharing. It is expected that, through the user-centred development and implementation of this system, children who previously were socially isolated will be more capable of becoming more socially networked as individuals. This will have implications on learning and interaction.
