Abstract
This study proposes a new tool based on Virtual Reality (VR) as a complement in the treatment of people diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). VR tools have been stablished in last years as a new option in learning and practising new skills during the treatment. In this work, a VR application is developed simulating several environments corresponding to different types of emotions according to the Gestalt school of psychology. The VR application was tested in five male teenagers diagnosed with ASD of level one according to the DSM-5 during the therapy sessions. A qualitative evaluation of the VR application is carried out by the therapist during the session. It is observed and annotated which emotions have been detonated by the VR application giving to the therapist new information for the subsequent sessions.
