Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder have rigid schedules and work with several different people on a daily basis. Doctors, therapists, and teachers may communicate with the child's parent regarding their care, but not necessarily with one another. WeSync has set out to change this. WeSync is an application for the iPad, iPhone, and Web, that creates a specialized profile for the autistic individual by gathering knowledge from each caregiver and establishing a centralized location where it can be accessed and edited by everyone. Establishing a dialogue among doctors, therapists, teachers and parents allows them to share information and reinforce one another's efforts.
What are the Benefits?
WeSync was a concept created in 2011 that won the Core77 Autism Connects Competition with Autism Speaks. It was awarded the juried prize and the community prize and I had the opportunity to present it to top autism scientists, doctors, and advocates at the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR).
