Event Details

TOBY Playpad is revolutionary new technology designed to support the learning needs of children with autism and provide support to carers, parents and practitioners. The TOBY software is designed to form a partnership between parent and child, and operates on the popular iPad, to not only deliver a unique form of engagement through games and tasks, but also a tailored program of activities that integrate skill expansion with daily life and experiences of the children.

TOBY Playpad has been developed by Professor Svetha Venkatesh from Deakin University’s Strategic Research Centre, PRaDA (Pattern Recognition and Data Analytics), and is the culmination of a partnership between a number of organisations, including Autism West and Curtin University. The multidisciplinary team behind the software is committed to improving learning opportunities for children with autism.

To officially launch TOBY Playpad, Professor Venkatesh will speak of the development of the software and the difference it makes to the lives of young children diagnosed with autism, their practitioners, carers and immediate families. This event will be of interest to therapists, teachers, families with children diagnosed with learning spectrum disorders as well as medical and research professionals.
