Abstract: Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) generally suffer from disorders which affect multiple behavioral aspects, such as communication, emotional awareness, social interaction, lack of attention, among many others. Modern technologies, are opening up new possibilities for computer-mediated interactions with increased outcomes, enabling both children and tutors to have a more effective work in the development of communicative and cognitive skills. In this article we introduce a module implemented in a platform for human-computer interaction, specifically designed for children with ASD, to control their levels of attention and test inducing behavior change. This allows us to shape new behaviors and learning strategies both in tutors and children.
