Leslie Toldo
, a reporter, discusses two variations on using technology to help children with autism.

Toldo first examines a program used in Spain – software named SC@OUT – developed by researchers at the University of Granada. The software allows non-verbal children to communicate via laptops, PDAs, or video game systems. Next, Toldo interviews Mark Goldenberg, who is executive director at the Norwalk CT Brain Balance Achievement Center. Goldenberg believes that the brain in a child with autism is not connecting the left and right hemispheres. The Brain Balance program works to strengthen the brain with treatments that include diet, physical, sensory, and academics.
