http://www.digitability.com/ Dr. David Mandell, Sc.D., Director, Center for Mental Health Policy and Services, University of Pennsylvania says: "The labor market for all people, including people with autism is changing dramatically. Digital savvy and digital literacy are going to be increasingly important. Digitability gives schools an opportunity to provide support to high school students with autism in a way they wouldn't be able to otherwise. If our expectation is that people with autism will have opportunities available to them to fully participate in their community, to be gainfully employed, to have meaningful life experiences then digital literacy is a critical component to that."
