A good alternative on the Internet for autistic children


Finally today I had the opportunity to visit the website that a computer grandfather created for his six-year-old autistic grandson. After visiting the ZAC browser, I realized that many times, if we do not experience a problem, it is very comfortable to leave aside those who do. It is necessary to look at all the corners, even those that are most hidden.

I feel that many parents of autistic children feel lonely trying to find a way to give their child a better quality of life. There are many obstacles that they encounter along the way. Difficulties that reside in medicine, psychology, law, learning systems, security, family, etc. The family is the staff of autistic children, so I think that initiatives like that of the American grandfather are more than welcome.

In the ZAC Navigator, with versions in English, Spanish, and French, the autistic child can easily and alone navigate the Internet, and interact with many web applications. For parents, there is a forum where they can share experiences and information with other families, as well as some links for consultation and guidance.

The design of the ZAC Navigator is simple and specific for autistic children, as well as for children with Asperger syndrome and attention deficit, or with some other special need.

Simplify content search and removes elements that affect the mind of an autistic child, as is the case of flashy advertisements, strong colors, and strong images. The simplified icons and their large size help the autistic child to access games, stories or mental exercises directly, without being frustrated by the lack of control.

In a corner of the web I found something that sums up what I felt when visiting it. It says that we can all learn from each other and strengthen and improve the lives of our families through communication. Staying in touch is vital.
