eLIFE • Social Network Based Digital Support for Individuals with Autism

People with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) require support with their activities of daily living. These individuals may have access to structured in-person learning programs to help develop social and independence skills such as interacting with peers and maintaining personal hygiene. However, in-class learning does not usually extend beyond the classroom. In this project, we explore a social network based digital support system that can bridge these gaps and extend and augment in-class learning.
