Abstract

A variety of different technologies are used to intervene in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) increasingly every year as more and more children are diagnosed with ASD. One of the technologies used is the use of images, multimedia, and animation with the help of computer technology to provide interventions of different abilities to ASD children. The use of animation provides significant benefits for children such as its use can be anywhere, anytime, and can be done by parents without having to be guided by a teacher or therapist. This study presents an early version of an animation tutoring application for ASD children by using web technology and the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) learning method. Currently, the application developed is the first level of the six phases of learning the PECS model. The development of this animated tutoring application is to aid and support teachers and speech therapists of ASD children by providing an interactive learning environment for children. The test is conducted by dividing it into three stages, namely pre-test, assessment, and post-test. The test results showed that there was an increase in vocabulary proficiency by 83%. This shows that the interest of ASD children is quite large in the use of animation-based learning media.
