SMART-ASD: Matching Autistic People with Technology Resources

University of Bath via FutureLearn

students interested


Most children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) also have an Intellectual Disability (ID) – or Learning Difficulty. However, this group is hugely under-represented within research and knowledge regarding this specific group can be hard to find.

On this course you will get more of an understanding of ASD and ID specifically. Then we will explore how technology can be used to best support this group, introducing you to the SMART-ASD app that identifies the skills and needs of children with ASD and ID so that the most suitable technologies can be identified to support them.

The course is perfect for parents, carers and practitioners. You do not need any prior experience of this subject. This course is aimed at all those interested in finding out more about autism and intellectual (or learning) disability in children, and how technology can support them.

SMART-ASD is funded by ERASMUS+ (2015-1-ES01-KA201-015946).
