Virtual Reality and Assistive Technology: Learn about the New New Things!

While virtual reality (VR) has been on the radar for decades, it wasn’t until recently that its use has become less of a novelty, and more of a consumer reality. Now, as VR technology becomes more ubiquitous, the big question is: How will this emerging technology enter the classroom and assistive technology space? In this session, Jaclyn Wickham, founder of AcclimateVR, explores some of the current and future applications for virtual reality (as well as some info on applications of Augmented Reality) to support students with autism and other disabilities.
