Chair: Sue Fletcher-Watson Committee: Gregory Abowd, Alyssa Alcorn, Renae Beaumont, Judith Good, Ouriel Grynszpan, Mari MacFarland, Helen Pain Technology and Autism: developing a framework for best practice in design, development, evaluation and dissemination of autism-specific technologies. The main issues raised at the 2013 SIG were: 1. the difficulty of appraising the volume and variety of technologies available for people with autism; 2. the lack of guidance for families and practitioners on how to use it; 3. the need for stronger research methodologies; 4. the need to share both data and technologies between researchers.
