Her team focused on designing an educational game Mind Forest Pro that aimed to develop social-emotional learning skills for 4-12 aged autistic children.

At the same time, children's learning progress is recorded and parents can then help children to transfer the skills learned at home into substantial social improvements for autistic children.
