Abstract

This paper describes the design, implementation, and evaluation of iCanLearn, a mobile flashcard application (app) that can also be used for creating social stories for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). The app allows users to create personalized content using text, pictures and audio on their mobile devices (smartphones and tablets). Users of this application software can also share the content by connecting their devices over Wi-Fi. An evaluation of the app from both the perspective of children with ASD and their caregivers suggests that the app is easy to use.
