Abstract

We describe the development of a multi-agent platform and adequate games that aim to stimulate social behavior of autistic children. User tests with two games, one with emerging patterns and another with goals and dramatic elements were compared. The results show that most of the children recognized the dramatic elements, which makes us believe that by longer exposure and proper guidance autistic children might be tough social skills. Test results are described quantitatively and qualitatively.
