In this special feature commemorating World Autism Awareness Day on April 2nd, we look at how we can use technology to help children with autism.
Saranya is 10 years old but can only say a few words like water and food. She also has difficulty communicating with hand gestures and facial expressions. Saranya was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) when she was four years old. Like Saranya, many children with autism find it difficult to communicate effectively. This inability to communicate is one of the most common attributes of autism, and it has a significant impact on the development of social skills, relationships, learning and quality of life for children with autism.In a world where technology is enabling better living, is autism able to derive its fruit from innovation? The answer is yes. In this article, we explore how technology can not only help improve the communicative abilities of autistic children, but also make learning easier and more enjoyable for them. After all, children of today are native speakers of technology, and this applies.
