Abstract: The proposal calls a methodology based on avatars for therapeutic interventions in children with autism spectrum disorder and auditory hypersensitivity. Its objective is to know how the use of technology through avatars promotes social skills and allows intervention of behavioral needs in children with ASD to propose a methodology using AVATAR based on the traditional methodology. On the other hand, it will also allow knowing if the auditory hypersensitivity of people with ASD can be intervened through the use of this strategy. Noise hypersensitivity is a common symptom of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ASD is characterized as one of the neurodevelopmental disorders with social deficiency, restricted and repetitive behaviors during early and progressive development. The methodology of this proposal is based on an experimental observational study of cases and controls where cases of auditory hypersensitivity were detected in children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and in neurotypical children.
