Autism Spectrum Disorder

At ATECH, we know that each person with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges. Some people with autism may be able to live independently with very little support, while others may require enhanced support in their daily lives.

Wherever one may be in terms of need, assistive and smart technologies help each person with autism live increasingly independent lives – at home and in the community.

At ATECH, we believe that every person with autism, regardless of complexity or severity, deserves the opportunity to live as independently as possible, whether that involves living with family, living on their own, or living in a community arrangement.
ATECH helps individuals and families implement solutions that balance independence and fulfillment with safety and security, offering family and friends peace of mind and support through the process.

New Possibilities for People with Autism

“Smart home” technologies are taking assistive technology to new levels. At the same time, these smart home technologies provide the information that caregivers and loved ones need to remotely support and provide safety and security.

To help individuals stay on task, social skills or with augmentative and alternative communication, there indeed is an App or a device. AT solutions also address wander prevention, medication management, emergency and medical response support. The key is finding the best match between the technology solution and the highly unique needs of each person with autism

Let ATECH help you create a thoughtful assistive technology implementation plan, so that you and your loved one can continue to live life to its fullest.

Starting With a Comprehensive Assessment

An AT assessment starts with an understanding of the needs, wants and desires of an individual with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The smart technology solution is then created. Training during the transition to independence builds confidence, competence, and comfort. The right supports, monitoring, and alert systems offer safe, healthier independent living.

Meeting Unique Needs

The ATECH team combines smart home and assistive technology with natural family supports, paid staff, and care services to meet individual situations.
