Given the difficulty of engaging ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) students, we use several different methods, such a social stories (mobile apps: interactive books and games), robot companions, therapy animals, and Minecraft. Most of these can be made available in the classroom by using tablets and laptops already available in the schools. In the case where the base tools are not available at a school, we can provide devices that can be shared by several students. The software we create is also localized to Central America so that it is relevant to the social situations that students in Belize are likely to encounter.
