The purpose of our project is to develop a computer game based on the functionality of the “Connect Four” board game to be used as a tool in the treatment of autism. The game will use techniques used in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and be used as a visual tool used in Discrete Trial Training (DTT). This document will provide a background on autism, ABA and DTT and then detail how the game will tie these subjects together.
