Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) refers to variety of developmental disorders that result in challenges in social and communication abilities and repetitive behaviours. While there is no cure for ASD at this moment, it is possible to improve on their area of weaknesses. As of now, therapy is commonly used to improve on the execution skills of children diagnosed with ASD. However, this requires resources, such as time and money, of both the children and the trainers. Game-assisted learning has shown potential to develop the execution skills of children with ASD. This research work covers the design and the usage of serious games to improve children’s general execution skills, particularly on basic vocational tasks.
