AI-TOP logoAI-TOP project – An AI Tool to Predict Engagement and ‘Meltdown’ Events in Students with Autism (Sept 2020 – Aug 2023)

AI-TOP aims to tackle early school leaving and to support the inclusive education of students with Autistic Spectrum Condition by the provision of personalised learning pathways and support according to the specific needs of each child. With our activities and intellectual outputs we aim to improve the understanding of autism both within school, and in the wider community and furthermore to provide a learning environment free of emotional trauma. We aim to increase the likelihood that students with autism will make the academic and social progress that they should. Via the use of the project outputs, we aim to decrease incidents of challenging behaviour, leading to the improved mental wellbeing of each student, and decrease instances of absenteeism and bullying. Our innovative mobile app will infer the level of engagement of students with autism in learning experiences, and predict ‘meltdown’ moments (even at the ‘rumble’ stage), allowing early intervention to pre-empt challenging behaviours.
