Summary

In this work, we present a platform designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder to develop language and generalization skills, in response to the lack of applications tailored for the unique abilities, symptoms, and challenges of the autistic children. This platform allows caregivers to build customized multiple-choice exercises while taking into account specific needs/characteristics of each child. We also propose a module for the automatic generation of exercises, aiming to ease the task of exercise creation for caregivers.
