Why We Need to Improve Autism Tech, Yesterday

Recording: Why We Need to Improve Autism Tech, Yesterday, Mar 11, 2019

Technology for the ASD community is quickly pivoting. The purpose of our session will be to discuss technologies and therapies currently in the marketplace for the ASD community, evaluate where the technology can go in the near future and then predict what technology might exist in fifty to one hundred years from now. Our company, GAIA Wearables, intends to create wearable technology that can prevent meltdowns amongst children with autism. At the moment, the only wearables intended for the ASD community are reactionary, prevention is the next step. The hope of this panel is to not only explain and expand upon the effectiveness of preventative technology, but identify how such technology could launch the entire community into a future of unprecedented, personalized treatments.
