Autism-Spectrum-Disorders

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can occur in children as well as adults – in Europe, the US, and Canada, around 6 in 1000 people are affected. Across individuals and age groups, ASD show a wide variety of symptoms, the most central being impaired social interactions and severe restrictions in communicating with others. Due to these impairments, children on the autism spectrum oftentimes have difficulties to keep track in (pre-) school – despite good cognitive abilities – and in interacting with others. These call for substantial individual aid programmes to provide the entire family with a functional everyday life and to support the quality of life of autistic children.

Behavioural therapy

Behavioural therapy for children on the autism spectrum is effective through a highly structured environment that allows learning in small steps and under close supervision. Such a supervision is close to impossible to achieve in the family context, which is why autistic children realistically receive only a fraction of the support they would need.

spectRVm

In the spectRVm project, we develop a highly controlled, digital learning environment which – thanks to virtual reality (VR) and intuitive controls via smartphone – is available anytime, anywhere. The spectRVm app offers flexible, affordable support every day of the week and holds a large collection of learning modules suitable for children of all ages.

Prototype of the spectRVm

The first prototype of the spectRVm app is currently in development, which is why we are always happy to get feedback and ideas from affected families. If we have piqued your interest, please do not hesitate to contact us or register for our newsletter to receive news and updates regarding the development of spectRVm.
