Hospitals and doctors visits are particularly difficult for patients with autism and their families. These patients have special needs relating to communication, environment, and behavior that are challenging in the unpredictable medical environment. The goal of our project is to create a program for patients with autism to improve interaction with the health care system. We will work with Vizzle, a visual software to create an on-line program for patients to help them prepare for their doctor's or hospital visit. We will create medical lesson plans and a system for health care providers to communicate directly with patients with autism using medically-related visual cues. This will be accessible on any smartphone or tablet device.See Idea Details remind me
