Abstract: The majority of educators consider problem solving as one of the most crucial learning outcomes. However, the instructional design models prescriptions for designing problem-solving instruction and engaging learners are still very limited. The design model process involved two instruments which were used to design model. The instruments used in this study to analyse children who have mild autism and children who have impairment in social interaction.This study depicts the workflows process design of the Vibratory Haptic Interface Model (VHIM) with the objective of gaining a comprehension on items of favourites among autistic children such as colours, games and shapes. The information gained assists in the creation of the Vibratory Haptic Interface Model (VHIM) design which incorporates favourite shapes, colours and 3D game. This study attempts to design the Vibratory Haptic Interface Model (VHIM) appropriate for specific disabilities in learning such as emotional and behavioural disorders which also comprise of autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. With regard to the model for resolving well-structured problems, it is formulated in accordance to learning s information processing theories. The VHIM Model presented in this study is valuable for enhancing social interaction and practice throughout disciplines.
