  8. 8. “Low” Technology<br />Have Visual Schedules using a white board<br />Increases his organisational skills<br />Know what is coming next<br />Helps in marking out school attendance <br />
  9. 9. “Low” Technology<br />Object/Activity Schedule which follows a timeline so the autistic person will know:-<br /><ul><li>What is currently happening

  11. 11. Changes that may occur</li></ul>Pictures make it more visual<br />

  13. 13. Simple enough for autistic people to use
  14. 14. Increase classroom participation, focus and communication
  15. 15. Appeals and motivates autistic </li></ul>people as they can feel and hear <br />the devices<br />

  19. 19. “High” Technology<br />Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS)<br />A software installed on mobile phones<br />Learn and express himself by forming simple sentences by arranging images on an adhesive strip<br />
  20. 20. Advantages of Current Products<br />Visually appealing<br />Something that they can touch, feel and hear<br />Attachable and portable in case they leave it someplace they forget<br />Improvements to be Made<br />
  21. 21. OUR IDEA<br />Incorporate visual cues into a device which is portable<br />Aids their daily routine by showing the respective picture of an activity at a certain time throughout the day<br />For example, picture of school at 8am, indicates time to head to school<br />
  22. 22. How does it solve the pain?<br />Their parents will not have to spend so much time/attention taking note of their routine<br />Reduces the possibility of an autistic child feeling frustrated and throwing a tantrum<br />Helps people with mild autism to better integrate into the society<br />Autistic child can now follow the same routine everyday with a guide<br />
  23. 23. Focus Group<br />Ms SerinnQuek Teacher of a Special School<br />Ms Ho Hil May Educational Psychologist MOE<br />Ms Jane Lim, has brothers with Autism<br />Preliminary Questions:<br />What are the problems faced by children with autism daily?<br />How effective are the current solutions in the market?<br />What do you think of the idea we have?<br />
  24. 24. Preliminary Findings<br />Inconsistency of environment at school and home<br />Solutions are either too expensive or applied only in school environment<br />The idea is unprecedented; nothing like this in the market<br />
