Link: Reactive Colors

Have any of you vis­it­ed Reac­tive Col­ors yet, or tried out the soft­ware? It sounds very inter­est­ing. From Mind­Hacks:

Inno­v­a­tive autism com­mu­ni­ty soft­ware project Reac­tive Col­ors had its offi­cial launch the oth­er day, and is now sport­ing a new web­site and numer­ous ‘reac­tiv­i­ties’ to down­load and play online.

The project is designed to encour­age indi­vid­u­als with autis­tic spec­trum dif­fer­ences and learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties to use com­put­ers, through which they can devel­op mouse, key­board, pro­gram­ming and screen skills and delib­er­ate­ly empha­sise the char­ac­ter­is­tics of com­put­ing that are of poten­tial sig­nif­i­cance to peo­ple on the autism spectrum.

The project is based on open-source prin­ci­ples and intend­ed to be more than just a free down­load. Inter­est­ed peo­ple are encour­aged to con­tribute their own pro­gram­ming skills to the project.

The input of peo­ple with autism and Asperg­er syn­drome is par­tic­u­lar­ly encour­aged, as they are like­ly to have the best insight into what sort of activ­i­ties will engage those on the autism spectrum.

Cyn is Katie's mom, Esther's Mémé, and a Support Engineer. She lives in the Atlanta area with her life partner, Rick, and their critters. She knits, does counted-thread needlework, reads, makes music, plays TTRPGs, and spends too much time online.

  1. I have no info about it.

    FWIW, a good half of my life is spent try­ing to encour­age my aspie to get OFF the com­put­er and inter­act with people. 

    Com­put­er inter­ac­tion seems to be eas­i­er than the human vari­ety, but any job sit­u­a­tion would require the human inter­ac­tion skills to be honed to some extent, at least.
