This paper presents progress on treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) using Augmented Reality based games. The aim of these games is to enhance social interaction and hand-eye coordination in children with ASD thus easing them into becoming more comfortable around unfamiliar people. Colour detection and tracking and motion tracking concepts in augmented reality have been used to develop games for young children with ASD. The idea is that these games will encourage concentration and imagination from children through repetitive movement and visual feedback.
