Autism Technology Summit Invitation

From: Maggie D.
Sent on: Thursday, May 11, 2017 11:52 AM
Hi All - a QS Boston member Miriam Zisook is organizing a symposium and design challenge around autism. I will also be there Friday and giving a demo Saturday. Please see below and register if you're interested; she's particularly looking for folks with QS backgrounds to participate. You can contact her at [address removed] if you have questions.


 
Collaboration Highlighting Autism Through Technology for Emotion & Relationships



 
Please join us as we come together to build a community of stakeholders in autism research that includes Autistic people, family members, professional caregivers and educators, technologists, and researchers. Through our collaboration we can facilitate a cultural shift to celebrate neurodiversity - the belief that neurological differences are to be valued and respected. 
 
Friday, June 9, 2017
Symposium
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
 
The symposium and dialogue will be focused on creating a shared 
understanding across stakeholder groups, through a series of panel discussions 
followed by small group discussion and brainstorming.
 
Saturday, June 10, 2017
Design Challenge
9:00 am - 6:00 pm
 
The design challenge will consist of teams of 5-7 participants representing all the 
stakeholder groups working together to conceptualize and demonstrate ideas for technology 
and interventions to support relationships and emotional health. 

The event will include a special session where emerging technologies will be demonstrated. 
The CHATTER team and a group of team leaders will help facilitate the design process as 
teams work through the stages of design as a team.
