Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingArticle in proceedingResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In this paper, we present a study conducted to investigate the
feasibility and eectiveness of Virtual Reality (VR) for teaching money
skills to adolescents diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Through a user-centered design, in collaboration with teachers at a special
school for adolescents with mental disorders, a VR money skills training
application was developed. A pre- and post-VR training evaluation
was conducted on ve students diagnosed with ASD using real coins and
bills. The data triangulated with observations during the VR training
sessions illustrates some potentials and benets in using VR as a mean
to teach money skills to adolescents diagnosed with ASD.
