Aydée Liza Mondragon, Roger Nkambou, Pierre Poirier

This research contributes to the advancement of intelligent tutoring systems by proposing an affective intelligent tutoring system in the field of specialized education. The Integrated Specialized Learning Application (ISLA) helps autistic children manage their emotions by analyzing the learning trace and considering the learner’s current performance to respond accordingly to it during a mathematical learning situation. We have conducted an experiment to validate the support provided by Jessie based on our accompaniment model. The results showed significant improvement in learning by the test group.
