Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder typically characterized by communication, social, and behavioral delays. The market for assistive technology that posits solutions for these challenges burgeons. With current CDC stats estimating that 1 in 88 people have an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the potential for continued growth in this expanding market is real. Quality, interactive apps that facilitate communication and social interaction have a place in unlocking some of the challenges of ASD. Expert panelists will provide an overview of the need for assistive, instructional technology for people with ASD, existing apps commonly used for/by individuals with Autism, pluses and minuses, funding sources for assistive technology, what’s lacking (funding sources), what’s missing, and what’s next. Selection of assistive devices for a variety of special needs will be addressed.
