Abstract: This paper outlines the analysis and design stages of an interactive multimedia environment for encouraging vocalization of people with autism. We described the user-centered design approach for involving users in different roles in the design of an Arabic interactive rehabilitation tool adapted to the needs of speech therapy programs used in the local context. Needs analysis included exploratory surveys and interviews conducted to understand how technology can help in encouraging the vocalization of children with autism. The design stage involved iterative development with prototype evaluations with specialists to refine system functionality and ensure the accessibility and usability of the system. Insights from involving users in different roles are described.
