Autism is a brain development disorder characterised by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behaviour. These signs all begin before a child is three years old. Autism involves many parts of the brain; how this occurs is not well understood.
Different levels of autism :
• Asperger syndrome – does not have much language development delay
• Rett syndrome – causes and traits may be different

Haptic technology, technology that interfaces with the user through the sense of touch. Haptic technology refers to technology that interfaces to the user via the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, and/or motions to the user. This mechanical stimulation may be used to assist in the creation of virtual objects (objects existing only in a computer simulation), for control of such virtual objects, and to enhance the remote control of machines and devices.
A touch screen device using haptic technology. The moment the user moves his/her finger over the alphabet it gives a vibration sensor which fades as the user moves outside the boundary of the alphabet. The device also pronounces the letter. Auditory interaction is important. Touch, sensory and auditory interaction help the user with multiple interaction.
