On Therapy for Autistic Children Using Interactive Media Art
Ting Xu

This paper is based on the theory of interactive media art. It refers to the understanding of various domestic and foreign scholars on interactive media art. It first indicates how interactive media art is different from traditional art and from its predecessor - new media art. Reflection on interactive media art suggests that it can help people in need and especially help break the self-enclosure of autistic children. There is some theoretical research on this question both in China and many other countries. There is nonetheless not much literature on the treatment of autistic children using interactive media art or on various methods of treating children with autism which explores the advantage and possible therapy for children with autism using interactive media art. In the previous studies, only a few existing interactive art cases and data consider the role of interactive media art in children's experiences, care and education. Through theoretical research, it will provide theoretical guidance for future research on autistic children in China.
