Abstract

Our app, ASCMEI.T. encourages people on the autistic spectrum; their parents, carers, teachers and connected professionals, to suggest digital and technical solutions to help people with autism. The app allows people to record and upload videos, demonstrating ideas that could help people with autism in daily life. These videos were collected on a private video channel called VIMEO, with examples shared on the ASCMEI.T. web-site to encourage wider participation with the app. Subsequently, the collated ideas were evaluated by researchers for novelty and potential value for people with autism and it is envisaged that one of the ideas would be suitable for a kick starter fund raising project to run later this year. Currently an analysis of the submissions is being carried out to identify whether or not existing products are actually already available.
