Since 4 December in Paris, and until Monday held the exhibition “Dare France, all visionaries.” The Grand Palais hosts a panorama of national best innovations for “reconcile the French with the corporate world and restore confidence in the economy.” Okay, I admit that the economy, it’s not really my problem … but the event still deserved to be reported because of the 200 builders present at the expo, 5 offer a technological innovation related disability, including 3 in connection with autism:
1 / Innovation in Robotics Robot with Nao
2 / LearnEnjoy (educational applications on touch tablets)
3 / Innovation in robotics with a robot created by Leka
(It is still early to know the true educational impact of these innovations on people with autism. The generalization of learning should also be the major problem to overcome for learners …).
Another example is the presentation of I can not believe my eyes , Web comedy series of disability awareness.
Place of autism in France
Autism did not a priori a place in such an event. Yet with 3 innovations of the 200 submitted, is to say that this disorder continues to be talked about, always a little more. Mobilizing parents, various awareness campaigns, involvement of public authorities ( Autism plane 3 ) and now entrepreneurship, contribute to make autism a major important issue (silly ‘hui had also held on Congress Autism France ).
However, France is far from able to meet all the needs of families. Things are changing, but too slowly, either for diagnosis, early treatment, training or professional schooling.
