Do you remember the “Apps for Autism” segment that aired on on 60 minutes in October 2011?

Did you also know there is a 60minutes show in Australia?  They also recently did a segment on apps and autism called “First Words”. It is almost like a ‘part 2’ to the original US segment giving an update on the some of the technology users.  You can see the clip at the link below…

Video: First Words

It is never “too late” to begin using technology for those are ‘differently-abled.’  It can make a huge difference in the ability to have improved regulation and communication. I am so impressed by Joshua Hood, a 28-year iPad user with non-verbal autism in both of these clips…amazing and inspiring.
