I am on a mission to find necessary solutions for autistic kids, adults, and neurodivergent to live their best lives in the future using design, technology, science, and data to create innovations. I am not a Scientist but a Designer and a Mom of Autism Spectrum and Neurodiverse children. I often wonder what their future looks like and I want to be a part of that future while helping others.

So join me in finding an answer to a familiar question we parents ask ourselves every day regarding our kid's future.

Autism and Virtual Reality Case Study

Virtual reality has emerged as a groundbreaking tool that holds immense potential for benefiting children with autism and special needs. By harnessing the power of design and technology, virtual reality offers a new and innovative way of communication for these children. Through immersive experiences and interactive simulations, virtual reality provides a safe and controlled environment where these children can enhance their social skills and engage with others. The visually stimulating and multisensory nature of virtual reality helps children with autism develop their communication and sensory integration abilities. Moreover, virtual reality offers personalized experiences and tailor-made interventions, allowing therapists and educators to address the specific needs of each child. This transformative technology opens up a world of possibilities, providing a therapeutic platform that can positively impact the lives of children with autism and special needs.

Toe Walking

Toe walking affects an undetermined amount of children who are Neurodiverse or on the Autism Spectrum, or have ADHD or other Neurological or Muscular diseases or disorders. The devices and treatments that are available are primitive and intolerable for a majority of kids because of SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder). I have designed a model that is functional, comfortable, effective, and looks good. I am working on developing a prototype and testing it.
