Abstract

The HANDS project is designed for Helping Autism-diagnosed Navigate and Develop Socially (HANDS) and combines studies within pedagogy and psychology with the more technological field of Persuasive Design (PD). Functional deficits in social ability are considered in teenagers diagnosed with autism in relation to underlying structural deficits, and the implications of motivation are discussed. Design-requirement proposals are made for of the Handy Interactive Persuasive Diary (HIPD) to customize its functionality to meet the specific needs of this population in order to support the development of their social skills.
