Technology Aided Interventions for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Serhat Odluyurt, Melik Çattık

Abstract


The use of technology for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has shown an increase in recent years. The purpose of this study is; presenting current information on research studies using technology-based intervention methods in the teaching of skills in all developmental areas to individuals from all age groups with ASD and to show if this intervention method is effective. For this purpose; on the performance of individuals with ASD a total of 45 articles, in which the purpose was assessing the effectiveness of technology-based intervention methods and published in internationally refereed journals between 2000-2017, have been reached. As a result, it has been revealed that technology-based intervention methods can be used effectively in teaching different types of skills to individuals with ASD from different age groups. The obtained findings are discussed.
