01. The Challenge

Activities for Reading Comprehension (ARC) is an application that helps children with Autism learn and understand in an interactive way. The main challenge with ARC was to develop an application for children that provides an interactive environment to practice words and sentences while storing their progress to create a learning curve for each individual child for experts’ review.

02. Project Plan

The client, a doctorate candidate at McGill University, provided us with detailed requirements on how the application would offer various tasks and exercises for children at different stages of the program. Each exercise, when successfully done, would progressively increase the difficulty of words and sentences offered along with pictures.

To make the experience more interactive for children, we decided to include aural feedback upon successfully completing an exercise.
