About this event
As part of the Autism CanTech! program, participants who enter into a paid work experience are supported by a new assistive technology known as RoboCoach, developed by Edmonton’s own Technology North. RoboCoach looks to support not only the participant, but also the employer as they work together and build better communication and processes for task management.
In this one-hour session, you’ll learn about Autism CanTech! supports, and meet Technology North CEO Ling Huang, himself a parent of an Autistic youth, and learn the story of how and why RoboCoach was developed, and how it works to create a sustainable employment environment for Autistic individuals.
