The purpose of the proposed project is to create an expression recognition game to encourage positive emotional development of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Video games are emerging as forms of computer-aided interventions for the treatment of autism, however many do not monitor the progression of the child within the game. By learning from existing approaches in ASD games and consolidating guidelines for designing user interfaces for children with autism, this project aims to create a fun and engaging game for children with ASDs that makes use of a touch device camera as a way of classifying facial expressions in order to improve the children's emotional understanding. © 2012 ACM.
