Abstract

This article presents a systematic process to develop technological supports for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), based on restricted interests. With the information generated from the diagnostic evaluations applied to a group of children with this disorder, were selected avatars that match their preferences. To do this, mobility was added with the aim of being used as a base in the development of therapies that promote the interaction and learning processes of children with ASD. This adaptation increases the children’s acceptance of the avatar, unlike other empirical processes that require an intermediate stage of acceptance.
