In 1997, my son was born with magic, wonder, kindness, and disabilities. In those years, I have had so many experiences – among them helping to start a school program in New York City and also creating the Tango, an AAC Device which many consider to have helped create new innovative energy in the world of Speech Generating Devices.

What is Squag?
[skwag] A curated social space for kids 8+ on the autism spectrum to build ideas about themselves.

The Mirror:
The mirror is the anchor of the child's Squagpad™. It is an opportunity for them to self-reflect and create original thoughts about themselves. It is a private, live webcam where they can literally see themselves, and even capture their own image to post in their scrapbook.

If anyone knows how hectic life can get – WE DO! That’s why we have created the Autism Speaks Weekly Whirl to fill you in on all of the highlights of the week!
