Abstract
Autistic children also are interested in music, math, art, and visual skills[2]. For them to use it, it is essential to have some training on these skills. As the children with ASD have issues focusing on certain things, the method of their training is strategically different. There have been researches around the world to find out new techniques which can help children with autism. Technologies like augmented reality can catch children's emotions and convert them into their attention. AR allows the user to see the real world with virtual objects superimposed upon or composite with the real world.* Here, we explore how augmented reality might help redirect the attention of children with Autism to the objects used during therapy by bridging the gap between the physical and digital worlds. Using the mobile augmented reality application we developed to let teachers superimpose digital content on top of physical objects, we investigate whether augmented reality elicits positive emotions and increases selective and sustained attention among children with Autism during therapy and whether they feel familiar with their environment or not.
