“Some individuals with developmental disabilities—autism in particular—may interact more successfully with computers and their associated programs than with traditional media. Limited social skills that are attributable to their diagnoses may impede dynamic face-to-face interactions; technology makes the attainment of these skills more linear and less time dependent. … The program exemplifies the fact that as a user’s experience improves, intuitive interactions become the norm. This phenomenon increasingly will allow everyone, regardless of their cognitive abilities, to partake in digitally creative activities. For people with developmental disabilities, a wide range of activity is now possible and will continue to expand as technology advances.”
