Autism Symptoms and Technology

Autism is one of the harder disabilities in which you can identify technology. So I have a list of different types of technology that seem to help in some way. Or at least seem to help mitigate one or more of the autism symptoms.

A piece of information that I have run across lately is a different type of keyboard. It isn’t exactly a keyboard. It is more like a video game controller. The person with autism uses it to cut out the confusion that people with autism feel looking at a typical keyboard. It is also used by people with physical disabilities.

This piece of equipment is called an OrbiTouch keyboard. A human-factors engineer named Pete McAlindon of a company called BlueOrb developed it. You can look at the article here
