Abstract

A paper-made Picture Exchange Communication System is the conventional pedagogical approach used to develop the communication skills of children with autism. Unfortunately, its disadvantages greatly increase the burden on caregivers and damage the experience of users. To overcome these problems, our multidisciplinary team produced iCAN, a tablet-based APP system that involves adopting the successful aspects of the paper-made PECS approach and incorporating advantages of an electronic device into several features to make the learning process easier. 11 children with autism participated in the experiments to experience iCAN. The changes in their user experience demonstrate the benefits of iCan as an orange technology.
