According to a recent CDC study, 1 and 45 children are found to be on the autism spectrum. What does being on the autism spectrum entail? In simple terms, Greg explains, those on the spectrum learn in different ways, and autism teachers have to teach them differently. What can technology do to help teachers transform their practice and support special education for children with autism? Greg is the Co-Founder and CEO of Thread Learning, which builds a data platform for autism and special needs education. His mission is to get 100% of the 1.7mm US children with autism on digital data within the next 5 years. Greg received his MBA from Cornell Tech, where he graduated in the Top 5 of his class. He received his BA in Economics Cum Laude from Washington and Lee University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
