Improving Social and Occupational Functioning of Autistic Employees

Imagine an employee with an "off the chart" IQ never realizing their full potential in the capacity to contribute to your company because they hesitate or have a disability that limits or inhibits them socially engaging, having eye contact, or giving a presentation. Now comes an idea, recently patented by AutismSees, LLC. Led by a 20 year female tech-idea wiz, Danielle Feerst, a Tuft's University Engineering Psychology student, she's patented an #Autism Technology device for computer tablets to train youth on the Autism Spectrum Disorder to give them effective public speaking skills, group collaboration, and eye contact skills. See the presentation here:
