Autism currently affects 800000 persons in Egypt and 120000 in Saudi Arabia according to king Saud university destroying their social interactions, communications and daily living. Unfortunately, it’s not controlled yet, but some specific centers deal with the Autistic child using some games after estimating the degree of the Autistic spectrum per each child individually for the reason of improving their verbal and nonverbal communication skills and reducing the severity effects of the autism. Current research are based on the existence of the caregivers or the teachers themselves for monitoring and correcting the attitude of the child, but there’s nothing allow us to have a 24/7 report about the child situation. So, our application monitors the child behaviors outside the autism center in the house, street, restaurant or anywhere else. It collects information about the surrounding environment in order to compare their attitude with the nature of the environment in terms of noise, sounds, lights etc. Also, it identifies the potential environmental factor which triggers such behavior. This will be done using the science of mobile sensing, voice, face, emotion recognizing. Other information including child's eating will be added by parents and caregivers through their accounts. Finally a full report 24/7 will be generated about the child's condition, attitude and the relation between all of the collected data and the environment. Moreover, it will be sent to the caregiver and the parents. On the other hand, lots of available toys help these children or their caregiver by improving different skills like social and communication skills, introducing themselves, saying hello, thank you etc. Also learning the colors, shapes, face expressions, how to eat, washing their teeth, using the bathroom , how to describe their feelings, or any other daily skills needed for everyone . All of the previous skills will be taken into our consideration and will be improved through several Arabic games since there is a lack of such games on Arabic language, then a report will be generated describing the effect of the game on the child and make a decision whether to go to the next stage or no. However we must not treat all the autistic children by the same way. We first must understand their attitude and give them the appropriate treatment every one individual . So we are configuring a dynamic suitable game which accommodates the child based on the data we collected above and reports . There is several apps in English provides games for autism children but none of these apps use the full potential offered by mobile technology and sensors to overcome a difficulty of how to monitor the child and provide him the suitable game without the need of the help from his caregiver.
