Abstract

People with Autism Spectrum Disorders learn to deal with episodes of anger, anger, or anxiety through pictograms and elaborate behavior control exercises during their apprenticeship at specialized centers. However, these practices require the direct assistance of a professional who assists them at such times and provides them with the necessary material to do so. We propose a system based on smartwatches and smartphones so that this learning can be carried out in a ubiquitous way and more comfortable for the user than the traditional method.
