Pervasive computing can assist caregivers in meeting the health and educational needs of children with autism. The technologies range from those designed to aid record collection, record analysis, decision-making, and communication to the use of sensors to help assess the internal states of the children with inherent communication difficulties. Having tested these technologies, the authors reflect on how they worked in practice and the lessons learned in developing technology for this domain. This article is part of a special issue on Healthcare.
