#ANCRA 2016 : Pascale Paturle presents "Autism & Digital technologies"

On the occasion of the "National Days of Autism Resources Centres" (ANCRA in french), Pascale Paturle intervened in the congress on "new technologies for autism." She particularly mentioned projects "Autism and Digital" we support.

For this forum, which gives a stage to organizations working with autism in France, Pascale Parturle, who manages Health initiatives at the Foundation spoke at the symposium about "new technologies at the service of autism".
Pascale mentioned two concrete and very recent projects which use digital technologies to improve the lives of people with autism and their loved ones:

  • TSARA, the first serious game, teaches best practices and the right reactions to have when interacting with people with autism at certain times, at work, school or in your time off... TSARA was designed and developed with the Aquitaine CREAI and was funded by our Foundation, its main sponsor..

    Mwoo, un robot "émotionnel"

  • Mwoo, the new "friendly" robot soon to be made available to people with autism who are particularly isolated because of learning difficulties or other disabilities. It is the size and shape of a baby, and easy to carry around, and users develop an emotional connection to Mwoo, which is also a unique medium for communication and sensory stimulation. Tested by Delta Plus with the support of the Orange Foundation, this innovation was designed by start-up Stimul Activ. It presents an original and tailored solution for people who cannot speak or use a tablet to communicate.
