In this paper, we developed two kinds of application software run on a mobile/wearable device for autistic spectrum disorder students, intellectual disability students, or physically challenged. One of the applications is expression detector/evaluator using a smartphone and a small expression sensor for social skill training. This sensor can inspect human's face-expression. We developed simple games with using it. Students can train to make his/her own expression by playing the game. The second of them is mental detector application using a heartbeat sensor in a smart watch. Using it, a students can predict own agitation by his/herself and the application informs it to a teacher. These two approach are desirable ICT application examples for the person. These can lead the students self-respecting, teachers mentioned. [For full proceedings, see ED571459.]
