Autitouch speedup the diagnosis of autism with an intuitive app

Autitouch was started from personal experience with autism by its founders. Diagnostics of autism disorders demand highly predictable and regular interaction, but are currently mainly done by hand. This makes the process subjective, prone to error, very time consuming and expensive. Autitouch was looking for a way to realize effective and evidence-based solutions for diagnostics and treatment of children and adolescents with autism.

Therefore Autitouch and Vanenburg Software developed intuitive software on multi-touch platforms (Table PC`s). The end-results are easy-to-use Apps where the therapist and child can play games together and generate diagnostic and observation data, along with behavioral characteristics linked to autism (DSMV). The collected data is used in auto-generated reports in the Autitouch cloud platform to give more insight in autism as a disorder.



The first solution which is released is the “Interactive Drawing Test” (IDT) and focuses on the element of reciprocity in the behavior of the child. The children make the test while playing on touchscreen tables with the therapist. The tablet collects the data automatically, generates diagnostic and assessed objectively and quickly in the Autitouch cloud platform, to provide a better diagnosis and gives more insight in autism as a disorder.

Jan Jaap Kanis, Commercial Director of Vanenburg Software: “We are very proud that we can contribute to the wellbeing of a vulnerable group of children in our society. With Autitouch you see how healthcare meets the world of IT, from social interaction to big data and analytics. We were able to make IT simple and provide an easy-to-use solution for children”.

The solution is offered in the market since beginning of 2016 and will be tested in practice among 250 children by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
