There is a growing number of professionals from health field, specifically ASD professionals who bets on the development of apps mainly aimed to education and free time and its best manage day by day, improving the life quality of ASD people and their families.
On TrasTea we could see tools such as:
Autismind, an apps intended for training on abilities from Mind Theory, created by Álex Escolà (child phycologist CDIAP DELTA and IDAPP centre. Specialized on early intervention and ASD.) Counting with IDAPP guidance.
Also, we could see robots created to recognise different feelings or working with communication, intelligent vests and watches that are able to recognise different moods or reactions from who is wearing them. An entire world full of possibilities ready to be explore and conquer, although a few sector are working hard for some time.
The congress was a coming and going of people, families, children, young people and adults all of them affected directly or indirectly by ASD. Also, It was a coming and going of associations and institutions, which gave us the opportunity to learn and share experiences and interests.
It has been years that ICT became a valuable tool to treatment of ASD people, even though we have a path to build a solid market, we are getting closer to ensure a market full of quality options.
