Autism employment app

Here’s an interesting article on an app for helping those with autism find employment. The article is entitled “How A.I. will help kids on the Autism spectrum find employment by over at Venture Beat.

Autism glasses?

Okay, so when I first saw this article, I must admit I was intrigued. Glasses to help someone with autism? Well, it’s an interesting article to say the least. It’s entitled “Autism Glass Takes Top Student Health Tech Prize [Slide Show]: A Stanford grad student’s invention uses Google Glass to help autistic children recognize facial and social cues in real time” by Prachi Patel over at Scientific American. Maybe you just have to see it to believe it.

AA or autism app

Now this is what I want to do, create some sort of app that will help my son and others with autism. Check out the article entitled “Doctor Creates Social App for People with Autism” over at the Autism Daily Newscast.Very cool!

I have to admit I’ve been reading a few books on app development lately and I’ve even downloaded a program to invent apps. Maybe the next article I post will be about an app I’ve invented?

Just google autism

Now those are three words I thought I would never use in the same sentence. First of all, I’m not one to use google. Maybe I’m just a little old fashion but I’ve really only used a couple of search engines. First it was Excite, then Yahoo! and now Goodsearch.

Goodsearch is in fact powered by Yahoo! but they also give 1 cent for each search you do and I figure since I’m a librarian, I might as well donate as I’m working. Right now I’m donating to the Missouri Special Olympics. Go Team!

So anyway, imagine my surprise when I saw this article. It’s entitled “Google Glass App Reads Emotions, May Benefit Some with Autism” at Autism Speaks. Maybe I’ll have to invest in a pair of glasses for my son?
