Those with autism possess limited communication skills inhibiting them from learning through traditional methods. Autism treatment is therefore limited to therapy in order to reduce the challenges associated with the condition and bolster self-independence skills. Therapy has remained essentially unchanged, and is heavily reliant on the student/caretaker relationship.
The TEACHINS-U aims to revolutionize the way autism therapy is performed.
The TEACHINS-U device aims to bolster the child's independence in performing necessary life skills, all while reducing the work of the caretaker. The technology used will focus on bettering the child's ability to brush their teeth, operate a door knob, and utilize a cup.
