Our Technology Vision

 

The New World Of Technology

Technology is all around us. Most of us have computers and mobile devices which allow us to access information anywhere, anytime. We can’t seem to live without them! Well, that may not be so different for people with autism. Many people on the autism spectrum are visual learners and are drawn to these devices for a host of interests: Videos, Music, Games and internet access to name a few. So if they are interested and motivated, why not try to use it to teach them skills also? So began the journey of discovering how to customize and introduce educational content in an interactive visual way.

Autism Cares Foundation: ipads in special education

Our Vision

Our mission has been to provide education for the implementation of technology into the daily lives of people with autism to enhance learning, life skill independence and communication.

The Autism Cares Foundation Technology Learning Lab was established in 2009. The environment was set up to allow parents and their children to come and learn about computers and iPods to help determine what best fits their needs.

We hosted open house events and parent support nights so families can gather to further their knowledge about the benefits of mobile technology.

In April 2010, we expanded to include Parent Education Seminars featuring the Apple iPad and in 2011 incorporated our innovative ‘iPad Technology Course’. In our classes, parents and children work together in a classroom setting utilizing iPad apps to creat a fun and engaging learning environment.

Also, throughout the year, educational seminars and focused workshops are scheduled for parents and professionals.
