See you at The National Autistic Society and ISAAC Conventions this summer!
We’ve just spent a year studying the science related to music and how it can help children with autism and Expressive Language Disorders learn to communicate.
We designed and produced a prototype for the iPad using music and images and conducted tests in 6 schools at the Toronto District School Board. The results were extremely promising and this prototype will form basis for an iPad app we call Sing to Say™.
In the interest of sharing our vision and meeting and learning from new colleagues, we’ll be travelling to a number of international conferences focused on autism over the coming year. This summer we’ll be at the 47th Annual Autism Society National Conference in July (New Orleans) and the ISAAC conference (International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication) in August (Toronto).
The Autism Society’s annual conference represents one of the largest gatherings of families, service providers, educators and policymakers in the community.
We’re excited to hear keynote speakers John Donvan and Caren Zucker, authors of “In a Different Key – The Story of Autism” and Steve Silberman, author of “NeuroTribes” who were featured in the recent PBS NewsHour’s series “Understanding Autism”.
