Individuals who are unable to manage this wind of change shall be left behind in the current competition. People with Asperger Syndrome (PAS) is known as a group that belongs to autism spectrum disorder. They are characterized by outstanding skills in specific area but have impairment in communication skill. Thus, PAS have the possibility to be outcasted in the post-modern constellation. This study focuses to bridge the gap between PAS and society by formulating a prototype of communication model based on assitive technology. Hymes’ (1974) theory of communication components and Saville-Troike’s (2003) inter-relation components were synthesized and implemented on mobile computing interaction platform for PAS. This formulation produces a contextual conversation therapy device named Communication Tunnel Model which could be progressively customized for PAS with various backgrounds.
