Abstract

A body of research shows the difficulties faced by children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This presentation aims to provide a better understanding of the role of video games in shaping the relationshipbuilding skills of such children. It adopts a mixed method approach, utilising exploratory questionnaires, experiments, and interviews, and aims to demonstrate the positive influence that games (such as Minecraft) may have on the children’s development.
