Several evidences showed poor motor coordination in individuals with autism. Thus, in this paper, we present a touch-based hand-eye coordination video game which shows clear difference between children with autism and typically developed children. The game is tested on five children with autism and seven typically developed children. These groups presented totally different patterns from each other; hence they can be distinguished with only two features in the game environment. This promising result encourages us to use this video game for initial screening of hand-eye coordination problem, especially in children with autism, which can be used everywhere without any costs.
