What if children with autistic disorders could become familiar with a virtual world before facing the real world?
In the case of people with autism spectrum disorders, especially among children and adolescents, the new immersive technologies are proving to be a real hope for a better future. They make social norms, autonomy and communication work in an anticipated context and using digital games. Far from traditional support, immersive technologies have a huge medical potential. Through VR solutions, people affected by an ASD are taking a big step towards a brighter reality.
Make autism understandable to the general public
Immersion in a modified reality is also effective in the other direction. By bringing a 3D experience to a person without ASD, it is possible to make people understand what these people are going through. The dazzling lights, the spontaneous sounds, the emotions felt during these disorders are now at the fingertips of the general public. Immersive technologies therefore provide educational tools to help understand these disorders. Let's hope that this reciprocal dynamic will change attitudes towards children and adults affected by the autism spectrum.
Help children with ASD overcome social interaction disabilities
VR technology enables you to create learning environments perfectly tailored to the needs of each individual. It allows you to control the virtual environment or input stimuli and show only what the individual can handle. That way, you can offer highly personalised treatment, regardless of the symptoms displayed by the patient. Another advantage of virtual worlds is that they decrease the complexity of social interactions, providing autistic children with a less hazardous and more forgiving environment.
