VR Teaches Driving to Autistic Teens

The title of this research study and project is a mouthful: “A Gaze-Contingent Adaptive Virtual Reality Driving Environment for Intervention in Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.”

What does it do? It helps people with autism spectrum disorder practice rapid-reaction skills that are helpful when doing things like driving.

I hope the study continues to improve its tech — one of the things that autists want most is the ability to do things that most people do; in gist, we call this independence.

Isn’t that what everyone wants? I mean, the differences between most of us and the neurotypical world are smaller than most people believe.
