Video game app to help children with autism in mainstream classes
Australian technology researcher, Anne Ozdowsaka, has developed a video game app that will help children with autism learn in mainstream classes.
It combines writing with methods to reduce the stress that autism spectrum students feel when asked to write. Ozdowska said the app will provide schools with a tool to include students in all activities.
Also, since the app can be used by the whole class, those with challenges need not be moved to special classes. The app will go through trials in five schools before it is launched in September.
