Abstract: Perspective-taking skills and eye-gaze processing are reported to be impaired in individuals with autism spectrum disorder. This paper presents the structure and the theory behind a learning game for perspective-taking skills and eye-gaze following. The game is for lower functioning children with autism spectrum disorder, and it was developed in the CASCATE project. It has the potential to improve autism research and educational settings. It can also offer new avenues for creating teaching and intervention methods.
