The Autism Village App

Autism Village is producing apps that are especially designed to be useful for managing life with autism, and it is based on their community of autism 'villagers'. Imagine for a moment that you're dealing with a never-ending problem that people with autism and their families face every day--Where’s a good place to go which is safe and won’t over stimulate me or my autistic loved one? Places that are staffed by helpful and understanding people where your loved one can feel comfortable and have fun. Well, check out the AV app and you’ll quickly find nearby places that are rated and reviewed by others just like yourself.

Click on the image or text link to visit the website for more details about this much-needed and worthwhile project. Then, support this effort at Kickstarter so it can become a reality for autistic families everywhere. And, don't forget to share and spread the word about it every which way you can on social media. Let's make this happen!
