Thailand: Mobile App for Autistic

The Autism Foundation of Thailand has developed a mobile application known as ‘True Autistic’ aimed at enhancing the “physical and mental development of the autistic, and provide guidance to their parents.” Since its launching, it has scored almost 200,000 downloads. According to a report written by Thanya Kunakornpaiboonsiri, there are about 370,000 autistic people in Thailand but only up to 12,000 people are able to access government health programs.
