Abstract
This paper describes a framework, devised for rapid application development, and rapid application customization of standalone multimedia and rich content software, targeted at students with special needs. We present a proof-of-concept software application for promotion and training of social communication skills in children with autism spectrum disorders. Web technologies and related standards are used as a way of easily involving tutors, professionals in the field, and end users themselves in the software development and customization process with minimal training and support.
