Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may be viewed as a neuro developmental disability that can affect social interaction, language (or) behavioral skills of children. Most autistic children show symptoms of withdrawal from social interaction and a lack of emotional empathy towards others. The underlying causes of ASD are still not well understood but an alarming number of children are diagnosed and also suffered from this disorder. Among the fundamental social impairments in the ASD are challenges appropriately recognizing and responding to nonverbal cues and communication. Several existing assistive devices mostly serve as remedial tool that provides a learning environment for autistic children to learn about the norms and difficulties of social behavior. However this tool lacks the capability to operate in conjunction with real world scenarios. So we proposed a new intervention paradigm that act as a portable system called facial expression recognition system that recognizes virtual reality (VR) based facial expressions in a synchronous manner and also to break the dependency of an autistic child by enhancing expression based accessing and controlling process in this modern environment.
