Autism awareness, iPad, and changing lives

I spent six years working with secondary-aged (14-21 years old) students with autism. It was one of the hardest and most rewarding things I've ever had the privilege to do.

At that time, the state of technology for these types of uses was woefully behind where it is today. Granted, we're talking about 1999-2005, but stay with me. The technology that non-verbal students used to communicate, for instance, was a huge, heavy piece of metal and plastic that had barely programmable capabilities for certain words and phrases that would be spoken upon selection through a garish sound system rivaled only by 1980s clock radio speakers. This equipment was exorbitantly priced, and very inflexible. The one thing it did well (arguably) was stand up to some abuse. They were like small tanks. But the kids would have to wear them around their necks and shoulders, which could be extremely uncomfortable. If they didn't have it with them, communication with others became difficult.

iPad and its impact: Five years later

Five years ago Apple once again revolutionized personal computing — and shipped the iPad.

The iPad was the first tablet that made sense. Some accused it of "just" being a big iPhone — and that was its genius. As I said at the time, it was the iPhone gone IMAX: The big screen allowed for a greater sophistication. It gave us a larger window into the Internet and apps and made them both bigger and better. It was also just the beginning...

Amazing iPad apps to help with autism and awareness

Today is World Autism Awareness Day and the beginning of Autism Awareness Month.

The United Nations General Assembly designated the day in 2007 as a way to raise autism acceptance and help those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Since it's launch in 2010, the iPad and iPad apps have been a tool in providing that help, and in aiding those with autism in finding their voice.

According to the CDC, one in 68 kids in the U.S. are on the autistic spectrum. According to a study by UCLA, using the iPad can help minimally verbal children more than double the amount of words in their vocabulary, and the earlier they start, the better they do.

Apple has created features like Guided Access expressly for people on the autistic spectrum, and developers around the world have created dozens of apps either specifically or incidentally helpful as well. The App Store is currently featuring a collection of apps for Autism Awareness Month, including several on sale. Toca has also assembled a TocaBox for autism bundle. Here they are, and more!
