Abstract

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) often have difficulties in the areas such as social interaction, communication and behaviour. This research focuses on the development and evaluation of PECSaya, the mobile based learning using Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) in Malay language for caregivers with Austism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) children. PECS is an alternative intervention to teach ASD children to communicate in social context. In this research, the expert and caregivers were evaluated using interviews and questionnaire respectively. To affectively achieve the research objectives, it follows closely the ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation) model which is under the Instructional System Design (ISD) methodology. Furthermore, the content structure of PECSaya includes the introduction, initial preparations, strategies and the activities which are developed mainly using Android Studio. In terms of evaluation, interviews were done to the expert in PECS approach to examine the content and usability testing using questionnaire were done towards the caregivers to know the user acceptance on this mobile based learning. For user acceptance, there were four motivational factors which are Attention, Relevance, Confidence and Satisfaction. The results concluded that 1. the mobile based learning was capable of grabbing the attention of the caregivers 2. the content of the mobile based learning was relevant to the caregivers' areas 3. the caregivers were not completely confident yet using the mobile based learning because it was their first time using the application 4. the caregivers were satisfied with the mobile based learning As a conclusion, the mobile based learning has been developed and evaluated. The issues on limitations and and promising directions for future research were elaborated further in this paper.
