Engaging children with autism in a shape perception task using a haptic force feedback interface

Abstract : Atypical sensori-motor reactions and social interaction difficulties are commonly reported in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). In our work, we consider the possible relationship between using our sense of touch to discover our environment and the development of interaction competencies, in the particular case of ASD. For this purpose we will use a task of shape perception, and a haptic feedback device. The design of the haptic device will be based on the State of the Art and advices from experts in ASD. We plan to work on the needs and skills of children on the spectrum in the lower range of intelligence scores. This article details the development of our PhD project, which aims at designing efficient and reliable haptic force feedback interfaces and interactions for ASD user. Preliminary results on the development of our interface and the design of the interaction tasks are presented as well as our specific contributions.
