Abstract: The purpose of this work focused in some design characteristics of Learning Environment on Mathematics for Autistic Children (LEMA), a digital mathematical learning environment with modalities of dynamic adaptations of the proposed activities having in consideration the user’s profile. The activities designed to enable adaptation were also conceived to promote the development of mathematical reasoning in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, (ASD) aged between 6 and 12, fostering access and equity in the teaching and learning of mathematics. In this paper, the readjustments on LEMA’s interface are presented, namely considering the new dimension of gamification integrating game-design elements and game principles in non-game contexts, as a form of enhancing the user’ motivation.
