Autism and The Information Superhighway

Reading Time: 2 minutes

I stumbled upon this website in July, and boy, am I glad I did. Even with pop-up blockers, I’m always concerned about the gunk that will find its way to my son’s monitor.  With ZAC Browser, I no longer have those concerns.

My son quickly figured out how to maneuver his way around, and I have become the developer’s #1 fan!

“Welcome to ZAC Browser – Zone for Autistic Children

You have found the best environment on the Internet for your autistic child.

ZAC is the first web browser developed specifically for children with autism, and autism spectrum disorders such as Asperger syndrome, pervasive developmental disorders (PDD), and PDD-NOS. We have made this browser for the children – for their enjoyment, enrichment, and freedom. Children touch it, use it, play it, interact with it, and experience independence through ZAC.

ZAC is the zone that will permit your child to interact directly with games (a LOT of games) and activities (focused on MANY interests) that cater specifically to kids who display the characteristics of autism spectrum disorders, like impairments in social interaction, impairments in communication, restricted interests and repetitive behavior. ZAC has been an effective tool for kids with low, medium and high functioning autism.

ZAC focuses on the children and their interaction – But we also provide an excellent forum for parents, caretakers, teachers, and others to share their experiences, tools and resources and to unite as a caring, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable community. It is said that “it takes a village to raise a child”, and that is exponentially true for raising a child with autistic spectrum disorders. The power of your experience yesterday is going to be instrumental in helping someone successfully tackle the circumstances of today.” {Source: www.zacbrowser.com}
