ICT tools are considered very promising in the treatment of people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), who experience - among others - severe difficulties in communication and interaction. A number of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) tools have been proposed to compensate for severe speech-language impairments in the expression or comprehension of spoken/written language for people with a variety of conditions that hamper their communication ability. In the case of ASD people, domain experts underline the necessity of high personalization of assistive tools, given the extreme individuality of the condition. In this paper we report on an on-going design process of an ASD-oriented AAC tool able to support operators in personalization tasks. The design is being carried out as an action research experience aimed at developing a prototype and at defining an underlying AAC model.
