Apps and autism | Autism Apps | Scoop.it
New technology can be inspiring, exciting or sometimes infuriating - but I can't ever remember it being really moving. Until, that is, I met Ruby Dunn, whose life is being changed by a piece of software.

 

 

This piece written by technology correspondent for the BBC Rory Cellan-Jones is yet another testimony on how allowing children with different abilities to find their voice thanks to technology is life changing, not only for those children, but for anyone who had the usual assumptions about their being "disabled".

 

I find it heartwarming, and if actually the cost of the software may be a burden to an individual family, the school system should understand that it is NOT an overated investment for the education of a very able, indeed, student.
