Schoolkids in US help design app for children with autism
May 2, 2016
Eashana Subramanian, a 12-year-old girl of Indian origin, wanted to create an app to help her sister Meghana, who is on the autism spectrum. Meghana had trouble telling her parents what had happened in school during the day and they were unable to help her out.
So Eashana teamed up with five other kids from a non-profit that promotes science, technology, engineering and math education. Together they created an app called AutBuddy, which is designed to help children with autism maintain a routine across their home and school lives.
AutBuddy helps kids with autism express themselves to others and keep them focused. It also helps in real-time communication between parents and teachers so both sides are aware of what's going on at school and at home.
The MIT Media Lab will help produce the AutBuddy and it will be available on Google Play in June 2016.
