Our paper focuses on the question of the potential of new technologies (NT) like augmented reality (AR) in the educational action of people with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), more specifically on the development of non-verbal communication (NVC). This study is part of special education (SE) where the educator is encouraged to seek new avenues and supports in order to improve the skills and abilities of the target population. The educator is perceived as: "the person who promotes the implementation of specific methods and techniques ... either within an establishment or a service, or in the usual living environment of the people concerned". Our research is interested in the question of the advantages of new technologies like augmented reality in the care of children and young adults with ASD, who are non-verbal. The intention of our paper is to highlight the strengths of using AR in the management of people with nonverbal ASD. In fact, the design and 3D modeling of objects, avatars and a daily virtual environment (VE) close to a real situation have become firmly established in the field of special education, which has many advantages.
