Coding Can Help Help Kids On The Autism Spectrum Think About Life

"As coding begins to seep into digital technologies curriculums across Australian schools, this transition can at times be seen to equate with raising a classroom of coders.

Craig Smith, Deputy Principal of the Aspect Hunter's School for children on the Autism spectrum, wants us to take a few steps back.

"Rather than thinking every kid will end up being an app developer one day, we're seeing it from the perspective that there are fundamental ways of addressing independent life skills and ways of thinking that coding is able to uniquely tap into," Smith told The Huffington Post Australia."

If we can expand the definition of coding, I believe we can achieve some interesting learning outcomes for every child.
