Abstract: This mixed-method study aims to examine the design features and effectiveness of virtual reality (VR) based, social skill learning tasks that aim to promote the social competencies development of children with high-functioning autism. These tasks support both steered and creative role-playing, collaborative design, and virtual gameplay among the target children. Nine 10-14-year-old children with high functioning autism participated in the study over 16-31 intervention sessions. A time-series, seasonal index analysis was conducted with participants’ longitudinal social interaction performance during and across various VR learning tasks. The study findings indicated that the design features of the simulated scenarios and learning tasks in the VR-based learning environment mediated the intervention effects on different social interaction performance.
