Publication Date



In this paper, we propose the use of the smart environment based on Internet of Things (IoT), P2P technology and Heuristic Diagnostic Teaching (HDT) principles for identifying learning abilities in mathematics and creative traits for students that are diagnosed within Autism Spectrum disorder (ASD). Our new system is combined with various visual systems, such as objects, photographs, pictures, realistic drawings, line drawings, and written words, and can be used with assorted modes of technology, as long as the child can readily comprehend the visual representation. We propose to use different assessment tools to learn about students' ability in math. Vocabulary skills, mathematics skills and other life skills can be taught through our proposed system.
