Abstract


The aim of this report is to provide systematic analysis of studies investigating ICT tools for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. They are categorized into ICT assessment tools and ICT intervention tools. The review outlines the origin of each tool, its functionality by describing certain technological features and how it attributes to this scientific field. On the one hand, there are many ICT tools that contribute in the diagnosis of ASD. On the other hand, ICT intervention tools play also an important role, trying to enhance both cognitive and social abilities of the ASD child. Through the review of these articles, we try to investigate how far they have come in meeting these targets.
