Join Us at SXSW 2014

autism apptitude at sxswEvery 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with Autism, a complex neurobiological disorder typically characterized by communication, social, and behavioral delays. Much media attention has focused on the power of tablet technology for communication, especially for those who cannot express themselves. Less discussed, but just as life-changing are apps that can be leveraged to address significant learning difficulties for people with Autism, including social interaction, engagement, organizational skills and transitions.

Join BridgingApps at both SXSW Interactive and SXSWedu next month for a panel discussion on how apps can effectively target skill development and harness strengths for those who need flexible modes of learning. Panelists will also examine the growing need for exceptional app development that allows users to create and customize content, track data, and monitor progress. A variety of apps and their target uses will be addressed and each panelist will weigh in on app features that benefit those with social, behavioral, and communication delays.

  1. Looking forward to your webcast on Autism aptitude. I am currently taking a class on AAC and I am very curious about the new technologies being used.
