Communicating with others is one of the major difficulties of children with Autism. Asking for help, initiating social interaction and sharing their emotions become skills that need to be learned from exercises and therapies. In this context the Cognitive Media Technologies group of University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain) together with the Specialized Unit in Developmental Disorders of Hospital Sant Joan de Déu (Barcelona, Spain), have created “Pico’s Adventure", a video game to encourage social interaction in children with Autism.
