Hi everyone,

I came across this article describing the use of technology to support
students with autism. The same supports, of course, can be useful to all
students.

The article mentions specific content transformations and some observations
which inspire some interesting learner preferences.

Quote from article: "A logical next step is to apply technology to the
delivery of higher education to support adolescents and adults on the
autism spectrum. Technology allows for accommodations to be built directly
into the curriculum, individualized programming, and support for students
in new and effective ways."
