We’re getting excited about heading to the Big Apple this week for Autism Speaks’ first-ever Autism Investment Conference.
With increasing numbers of children with autism attending schools across the country, we are seeing significant changes in the education landscape. In particular, advancements in the Ed Tech industry and the increasing availability of mobile devices have enabled teachers to revamp their approach to special education.
Of course the autism community faces mounting needs in areas beyond education as well. We will be learning about companies seeking to address community needs in four different categories – therapeutic devices and medicines, diagnostics and enabling technologies, assistive technologies, and support and services.
Stay tuned for updates as we gain insight on how the needs of this community are changing and being addressed in the marketplace. If you plan on attending the conference, be sure to keep an eye out for CB&A team member Carie Breunig (@carieb2). If you’re not attending, but would like to keep tabs on her activities, watch for photos on the C. Blohm & Associates Facebook page and Twitter profile.
