Technology facilitates the treatment of autistic people – startblog
The attraction of autistic children by technological equipment has been used for the development of more effective teaching techniques, with their own language.
The autistic spectrum involves, in addition to autism, Asperger Syndrome, Rett Syndrome and other disorders characterized by poor development, which affects speech skills and social interaction and, in some cases, loss of motor skills.
With the use of videos, PDAs (kind of minicomputer)and virtual reality, many children have achieved significant improvements, increasing accuracy and consistency in their activities. Many apps have helped in family interaction, small routine activities such as: brushing your teeth or putting on a blouse, correct use of strength in a given movement, and still independence.
In addition, technology allows us to teach certain types of skills safely, when live training would be difficult or dangerous, such as crossing a street, for example.
According to Paula, Felipe's mother of 4 years:
"For example, there are some videos that teach little ones to exercise day-to-day activities, such as bathing, combing their hair, and even brushing their teeth. What seems like an easy task for an autistic can be a big challenge."
"Technology has also brought him gains in speech, literacy facilities, besides being a facilitator in the interactions between him with the world, because one of the difficulties of autistic people is often leaving home and having this relationship. And with technology and the internet, we can bring the best of the worlds: it can evolve and invest in this kind of relationship following its own pace."
According to Marcos Mion, romeo's father of 14 years:
"My personal experience proves that the tablet, in my case the iPad, was the way Romeo 'exists' in some ways. Which gave him the ability to connect with family and friends on his own, for example. Can you imagine what it is for a child who is still learning how to write to gain the world to research, listen to music, see images and discover things with siri's help? Not to mention Amazon'sown Siri or Alexa,whom Romeo talks to for hours left!"
Thus, with the use of technology, the possibility of visual, tactile and auditory connection was opened improving quality of life and interaction with the world.
