Abstract:This research seeks to identify existing assistive mobile applications targeted at individuals with autism over the age of 18 (“adults with autism”) who have trouble communicating or lack the ability to live independently. This research seeks to answer the question, “what are the existing gaps in mobile assistive technology for adults with autism?” Through performing a qualitative analysis, we examined existing gaps in mobile assistive technology for adults with autism. Our research analyzed 39 mobile applications by identifying prominent features/characteristics. Our initial findings showed that there needs to be an emphasis on communication and functional life skills when creating mobile applications geared towards adults with autism.
