VOISS Offers Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder a Way to Practice Social Skills

For individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), social interactions can be awkward or difficult to navigate. The solution may be found in virtual reality applications being developed by researchers at the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning. The VOISS, or Virtual Reality Opportunities to Integrate Social Skills, walks users through a variety of potential social interactions.

Behind Our Research

"Research tells us that sustained, personalized, contextually-relevant professional learning has the biggest impact on both educator and student learning. In order to ensure that all children are taught by well-supported teachers, we need to look for solutions that may not look like traditional in-service or on-site coaching."
-- Suzanne Myers, Associate Researcher
