1 out of 68 children in the United States will be diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The prevalence of an ASD diagnosis grew by 72 percent between 2007 and 2011. Tech-based interventions targeted to children with autism have the potential to help solve challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communications.
