The work presented in this paper was part of investigation in assisting echolalia attacked autism people with the help of mobile application. One of the biggest challenges that the society faces is ensuring that autistic children communicate and interact socially, so that they may develop their skills and consequently, contribute to the society. The objective of this study is to design a system that will help autistic children to improve their social interaction skills. The system will be run on the Android platform, a popular platform where a great number of smart phone device applications are run. The application will be designed based on the characteristics of echolalia attacked people with autism.
