This issue of NASET’s Autism Spectrum Disorder Series was written by Patricia Sandoval. The use of technology to support students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has gained significant attention in recent years. Innovative methods to improve social interaction, communication, and learning abilities for people with ASD may be found in technology tools, which span from virtual reality apps to smartphone applications. Technology can also create an organized and visually stimulating learning environment, which is advantageous for individuals with ASD. While the usefulness of electronic tools varies according to each student’s individual requirements and traits, there is emerging evidence that technology may play a critical role in aiding their educational and developmental journey. Researchers and educators are constantly investigating how technology might be used to provide more inclusive and individualized learning experiences for students with ASD.
