Visualizing voice  

The goal of this work is to develop and evaluate a set of voice visualization software tools that specifically target multi-syllabic word production in children autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The use of technology has the potential to alleviate some apprehension experienced by many children with ASD when interacting with others. In addition, it can provide teachers and therapists with new techniques to complement and/or supplement their existing approaches. Finally, due to the profile of strengths and weaknesses of children with ASD, the introduction of human-computer interaction may shed new light on a field that has been almost exclusively experienced through human-to-human interaction.
