Abstract

We propose the Tactile Music Toolkit, a wearable device that delivers audio feedback to aid in communication and interaction for autistic children. The toolkit is wireless and is packaged into a compact module to promote more physical interaction among autistic children which can aid in their communication and social development. Our preliminary observations showed that our toolkit was fun to use and it helped them in their willingness to engage in physical contact.
