Alex Vassar's insight:

I think children with Autism are amazing. They don't think the same way we do. They hate social gatherings because they lack social skills. But, some of the greatest people in the world had it like Bill Gates and Alexander Graham Bell.

The Autism team created the Empathy Box @ Design for America

The Autism team created the Empathy Box @ Design for America | Autism | Scoop.it

The Autism team created the Empathy Box, a collaborative storytelling tool to build empathy for families affected by autism.  They had originally focused their project on the design of learning spaces for children with autism.  However, through attending parent support groups they realized that the broader problem is a lack of understanding about autism and their children’s needs and behaviors.  The Empathy Box helps families share their stories and build understanding, creating new advocates within the community.  Parents and children fill the box with their stories and artifacts that reflect their experience, pass it on, and repeat.  Each box is tracked and documented, eventually returned to DFA to be uploaded onto http://empathybox.org/ to build a gallery of stories.  The team launched the Empathy Box at the Autism Project’s annual Imagine Walk, where they distributed 150 boxes!  The team has received several grants and will be continuing their work through the year.

Have you heard of the Zac Browser, a free browser that is designed for students with autism. The browser allows learners to access a variety of games, activities, videos, stories and more in a safe environment. The Zac browser website (http://zacbrowser.com/) provides a "pleasant, rewarding and secure experience."

The video above is a tutorial made by a student that discusses the browser.
