  1. Resource Description
    Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) exhibit varying levels of communication abilities. This software aims to develop a communication system for such children. Resulting technology could also benefit other children and adults with adequate cognition but limited communication options. The software is meant as an assistive communication facilitation device referred to as the RSVP Keyboard. It unites three technologies: 1) Rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP, with individually adjustable presentation rates) of letters/words/phrases; 2) a yes/no intent detection mechanism based on detecting evoked-response potentials (ERP) in the brain to determine which target letter or letters the child wants to convey; 3) a statistical language model based dynamic sequencing optimization procedure that computes which letter needs to be presented next to take advantage of regularities in language. The system operates by showing the sequence of candidate letters on the screen as well as previously typed text, such that words and phrases are formed naturally by adding selected letters.
