Assistive Technology Initiative
Assistive technology has been shown to help many individuals with autism. Ipads are just one way to help facilitate communication and learning, but many times they are cost prohibitive for families. As part of our efforts to support families, we will be holding an iPad raffle at each of our major events in the coming year. This is intended for families who have a child with ASD that would benefit from this type of assistive technology. While everyone who attends is eligible to enter the raffle, we ask that you take into consideration the intentions of this initiative. For more information on apps for autism click here.
