We all know technology is a growing part of education, and a new iPad app promises to aid children with autism in the classroom, and in life.
Developers at the Pittsburgh- based company "Interbots", have been working with the Barber National Institute, to create a game that focuses specifically on the needs of children with autism.
The game is called "Popchilla's World", and it prompts kids to perform various daily tasks for a friendly blue creature, like washing him and brushing his teeth. The Barber Center was the site of the game's first test run with actual students.
Up next, developers are working on a robot that lets kids transfer what they learn from the digital world, to the physical."
The hope is it will help children with autism become more self-sufficient.
The app will be available in the Apple app store and the android market, early next year.
