Autistic Boy Learns to Speak With the Help of Technology – NBC Right Now/KNDO/KNDU Tri-Cities, Yakima, WA |

See on Scoop.itM-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications

An autistic teen who can’t speak, wrote a book about what its like to be autistic.   It is opening eyes about what kids with Autism are thinking, feeling, and capable of.

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

This is why I love iPads so much. I think it opens up whole new worlds not only for non-verbal autistics like the boy in this story, but also those who are verbal, like my high-functioning son. I still believe that tablets–especially iPads–are still the tools that will help the most with aiding special needs kids communicate and participate in society.
