Virtual Reality Autism Demystification® enables users to ‘feel’ and empathize with individuals on the autism spectrum, while at the same time learn prosocial communication strategies to enhance social inclusion, peer social interactions, and reduce bullying and isolation. A multi-sensory, virtual reality experience designed for peers, parents and professionals. The program focuses on addressing the social challenges individuals with autism face in our schools and community settings.
