A mobile application which uses the video modelling and Augmentative and
Alternative Communication approach is developed on a device such as tablet and
mobile phone. Video modelling is an approach that has been used as a teaching method
where an individual watched a video of someone performing an action such as
brushing teeth and imitate that action, meanwhile, AAC is a form of a communication
that helps people who struggle to communicate properly like a normal person. As the
number of autistic children increasing each year, the quality of teaching aid needs to
be improved to enhance their skills. However, there are lack of current mobile app that
can help ASD children carrying out their daily life routine and enhance their character
building to shape them to be a better person. Therefore, this project aims to identify
how to integrate AAC and video modelling approach, to develop the mobile
application and to conduct the usability testing. Requirement gathering is done through
literature review of research papers, observation, questionnaire and interview. At the
same time, this project methodology is based on Rapid Application Development
(RAD), which has an outcome of a project’s prototype which is a mobile application
that called AutiAct. Later, the testing has been conducted where an observation has
been conducted with 4 ASD children that aged from 7 to 12 years old where each of
them has different type of severity meanwhile usability testing and interview questions
has been conducted with 3 teachers from The National Autism Society of Malaysia
(NASOM) to test the effectiveness of AutiAct. In summary, AutiAct is reliable to help
autistic children to enhance their independent skills so they will less depend on their
parents as they are getting older and it also embed some character building for autistic
children to help them shape their personality and characteristics.
