Gaming has been viewed as a way of making education fun and is able to engage children in the learning process longer. This paper presents a development of a game-based courseware for children with social impairment. This courseware focuses on helping children with Asperger’s Syndrome to learn facial expression and social behavior. Six children are divided into two groups; Asperger’s Syndrome group and a control group consisting of normal children are tested in playing this game. The result shows that there is an improvement in the former group’s scores which indicates that this courseware is effective in helping children with social impairment to learn facial expressions and social behavior.
