Autism and Technology Showcase at the Beckman Center

December 9th, 2012  |  Published in News

Many members of the STAR group (and our alumni and friends) demonstrated some awesome technologies at the Beckman Center on Saturday to nearly 150 members of the community, including parents, clinicians, teachers, therapists, other researchers, and more. The event was a great success with nearly every attendee demanding more in the future! We are looking forward to following up with the autism app jam in April.
