iTaalk Autism Foundation: Connecting Individuals with Autism with Tech Resources
The iTaalk Autism Foundation is a non - profit that provides technology resources to individuals with Autism. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. [source: autismspeaks.org] iTaalk works with families and educators and informs them of technology that benefit individuals with Autism. One of the main programs include workshops where they share information about educational apps and devices. They have helped over 3000 families! Organizations like these are really important in our society. It's important for us to remember that technology is not only for entertainment but for the benefit of individuals in our society who need an extra push, such as those with special needs! They have a special program to provide devices or apps to families who are unable to attain them. Make sure to share this with anyone you know who has an Autistic family member!
