The intelligent system has presumed a new hope in almost every field, a hope of improving things and making those things effortless for each person. In the same way, hope rose in the direction of distressed and impaired people like disabled people, handicapped people, autistic children, and many others. According to the study, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is easily found in 1 among 68 children. The main aim of our work is to help autism children to be adaptive, adjustable and interactive with outer world. For this we conducted survey and on the basis of the survey result analysis it was understood that the major problem the autism child suffers from is the Life skills and Emotional skills. So, we designed a Krisha mobile application which is friendly and easy to use, have games after every module so that autism child can enjoy learning and also have interactive interface that coincide with the current environment to keep them motivated and busy. The evaluation and the testing of the application were done. The result of which states that the autism children are benefitted in learning Life skills more than the Emotional skills.
