Autism has a lot to do with deficits in attention management, information processing, and memory. In the past few years, augmented reality technology (AR) has gradually been embedded in teaching tools for children with autism because of its unique advantages, such as engagement, interaction and providing a richer user experience. This study designs a game for children with Autism, aims to explore the effects of combination of AR and sensory integration therapy. We designed a scooter tracking and positioning game with augmented reality technology (AR) for children with autism. This game aims to concentrate their attention and improve their coordination, vestibular balance and proprioception.
