TestingAt the end of the tests we had enthusiastic and happy students as well as grateful and happy teachers and educational assistants. The team has conducted a number of tests within Ontario schools with the aim of gathering data conducive to development for individuals with Autism aged 12-19. This invention is a custom application designed specifically for youth with Autism. Currently, there are few products that cater specifically to students with Autism. Our research at schools has found that enrichment of education from software applications for PC’s and for new technologies such as tablet devices are somewhat restricted in terms of creating a fun filled learning experience for individuals with Autism.
DesignThe game design, play elements, and scoring structure are specifically designed to engage autistic users. Our reward structure coupled with positive reinforcements while navigating gameplay results in an uplifting experience for the user and educators. Usability is tailored to the youth’s dexterity and hand/finger motions, which is why we have created both tablet and desktop versions to cater to as many individuals challenges as possible. Sounds are used at specific instances in game play to engage the user and to enrich the gameplay experience. Data has been collected over an extended period of on-site tests within schools and we worked hard to develop – My Digital Colouring Book – It’s Coloriffic!
