Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. participants will learn about differences in the effectiveness of two emotion identification interventions for children with ASD under two language conditions
  2. participants will understand the practical implications of choosing effective app-based interventions for children with ASD
  3. participants will recognize the benefits and limitations of app-based emotion identification interventions and directions for future research


Children with ASD often have difficulties identifying and understanding emotions in social contexts. Applications for tablet devices are a popular way to implement emotion identification interventions for children with ASD. However, studies have insufficiently investigated important aspects of these interventions. This study used an alternating treatments single-case design to determine whether children with ASD make more progress in learning emotions when shown human or cartoon faces using either an expressive or receptive language response.
