Hacking Autism – Using Technology to Give People with Autism a Voice

When touch-enabled computing was introduced to the world, no one could have anticipated that this technology might help open up a new world of communication, learning and social possibilities for autistic children. Yet it has.

Hacking Autism is a story of technology and hope and the difference it’s making in the lives of some people who need it most.

Hacking Autism doesn’t seek to cure autism, but rather it aims to facilitate and accelerate technology-based ideas to help give those with autism a voice.

Share Your Idea

If you could design a touch-enabled software application for the autism community, what would it be? Maybe it’s a game or a learning tool or even something that could assist caregivers. We want your ideas.
