  • Summary: This proposal comes from URV's 1st Social Projects Marketplace and is part of an interdisciplinary project with the participation of students and lecturers from the Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, the Master's Degree in Training for Teachers of Compulsory Secondary Education and the Master's degree in Telecommunication Systems and Services Engineering. Children with Asperger's have difficulties obtaining satisfactory results at school because most school activities are designed for neurotypical children. Their learning can improve with strategies for methodological adaptation based on new technologies. Thus, this 2014-2015 master's thesis compiled scientific evidence for advising secondary school teachers on how to use information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve the education of students with Asperger's syndrome. For this purpose, the student made a systematic analysis of the main research done in the field and wrote a proposal about the use of ICT for children with Asperger's.
