Engaging chinese children with autism to interact with portable hand-and finger-gesture based applications: Experiment and reflections
Recent work by researchers in China has demonstrated the potential for collaborative play as an educational tool for children on the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In this paper, researchers in the United States and China investigate the potential for accessible interface design and learning by students with ASD. Through the use of known tools and interventions, an educational protocol has been designed to evaluate two applications. The pilot studies, including experimental design and outcomes, are presented here, and provide a solid foundation for comparative assessment of mid-air finger-gesture interaction as well as hand-gesture interaction. Early results in China are promising, based on experiences in the United States.
