Technology support for interactive and collaborative visual schedules  

Visual schedules can improve the ability for individuals with autism to understand, structure, and predict activities. Dr. Hayes aims to produce affordable and effective solutions for computer-based interactive, collaborative, ubiquitous, and intelligent visual schedule systems. Dr. Hayes' lab will develop interactive, sensing, and communications technologies that can be used both in schools and in homes and that can support the user in dealing with the unexpected events in daily real-world life. They will leverage existing classroom and home practices, as well as technologies previously shown to support collaboration and interaction in special education and autism-specific classrooms, including technologies previously co-developed by Dr. Hayes with the help of prior Innovative Technology for Autism Initiative support.
