Children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders suffer from varying degrees of qualitative impairments in social interaction, communication and restricted patterns of behaviour. This is accompanied by hyper- and hyposensitivities in each of the senses. Given that each child seems to have a unique profile, there is a clear need to develop systems that may not only be of benefit and pleasure to them, but that are also tailorable to their individual characteristics. This paper outlines the research undertaken in understanding the characteristics of children with ASD and how such an understanding has led to the development of a low cost, multimedia environment for mainstream schools.
