As we embark on our third decade of virtual reality and behavioral health, we are continuing to expand the uses of VR to diagnosis, assess, and treat a myriad of disorders. We are also tapping into the power of VR to better facilitate skills training.

mHealth is revolutionizing how and where behavioral health services can be delivered. With less expensive VR hardware, we are witnessing a move to seamlessly deliver care from the clinic to the home setting.

The majority of studies using VR Interventions for ASD to date have been focused on social or emotional skills training, many with small numbers of participants. Many studies have also not included objective physiological metrics, but with the use of new, less expensive wearable technology this is becoming more frequent.

We have not yet begun to fully explore all the possible uses of VR in healthcare. For this Special Issue, we are interested in clinical studies that have shown significant and unique advantages using VR interventions to help those with ASD. The focus of papers should not be on the technology, but rather validated clinical outcomes and where applicable significant economic benefit.

We are seeking high-quality original articles on the following topics related to Interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorder research to include:

  • Social Skills
  • Emotional Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Daily Living Skills
  • Attention (related to ASD specifically)
