Abstract

Special education and treatment methods in the early ages are the keys to relieving Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) symptoms. These smart clothing items 'TellMe' are designed to treat ASD symptoms in boys by encouraging them to speak out and express themselves while playing with and enjoying the clothing. Therapeutic functions, including different types of sensors (a flexible film-like pressure sensor, a light sensor, and a motion sensor) and actuators (LEDs, a DC motor, and a vibration motor), are incorporated to the clothing. By playing with the interactive robot characters on the clothing, such as speaking into the microphone or activating the sensors and other actuators, a child wearing the garment can naturally learn and practice how to express his feelings, emotions, and opinions.
