Cartoon of people in a groupAutism, barriers to social engagement and interventions

Social interactions and engagements between people are not essential for life but are essential for living, without which we are at risk of becoming isolated and socially excluded. For people with many long-term conditions, there are often barriers to these forms of engagements that can detrimentally affect their quality of life.

The work proposes to explore the application of technology and relevant knowledge to develop systems to help provide interventions to overcome barriers to social engagement for people with long-term conditions. The project focus will be in the area of Autism and barriers to social engagement arising from the condition/s.
