Abstract

The paper reviews state-of-the-art in TEL to support social communication skill development in children with autism. We identify the driving research directions, and their associated challenges, from three broad perspectives that shape TEL: pedagogical foundations, technology, and learner involvement in the design process. We further explore these challenges through the discussion of ECHOES, an example state-of-the-art system. The review assists researchers working in multi-disciplinary teams to identify the new directions that are shaping state-of-the-art in order to drive successful future research projects in this area.
