TAN's vision is to create a suite of mobile applications that will support the specific deficits that children with autism experience. It will provide tools for parents/caregivers, teachers or other professionals that are easy to use and customize so that they can be uniquely used for each individual child in a simple intuitive way. In addition, by using new mobile devices we can provide a platform that is colorful, engaging, and rewarding for the individual with autism, that is instantly customizable with camera and video capabilities, and that can provide data feedback and much more. To round this out, TAN's vision includes having a community to share all kinds of needed information and best practices, as well as numerous kinds of practical supports. Supportive resources will include online training, personalized content, knowledge sharing, expert advice and community sharing, locally and globally.
