Abstract/Notes: A Tangible User Interface (TUI) can bridge real-world physical objects with the digital world, which has much potential for children with ASD. However, at present, most TUIs have been developed for children in affluent countries. Such solutions may not be applicable for children with ASD in low resource countries like Sri Lanka. Therefore, we have designed a tablet-based, and cost-effective TUI called POMA (Picture to Object Mapping Activities) for supporting social and cognitive skills of Sri Lankan children with ASD. This paper presents the evaluation of POMA with 20 children with ASD (moderate: 6; mild: 14) and five special education teachers. Results show that both groups of children were able to play POMA accurately. However, children with moderate ASD required more time and help from the special education teachers to play POMA compared to children with mild ASD. This study identified several lessons for designing TUI, such as the importance of including audio prompts when the system is in idle state, using appropriate helper cues, using multiple types of reinforcements, easy-to-handle nature of the tangibles and the properties of them. Finally, we provide guidelines to overcome the issues for designing low-cost TUIs for children with ASD.
