Palm Canada announced a Palm Foundation cash grant and the donation of 100 Palm handhelds and accessories to
kick-start a new e-Learning program at the Geneva Centre for Autism. The resources are being used for training and technical-support costs associated with transferring paper-based visual cues and reminders onto Palm handheld devices.
“We are very excited to work with the Palm Foundation to advance our mobile-learning initiatives for autistic individuals using cutting-edge technology. Our goal is to empower people with autism by giving them the tools they need to lead independent, confident lives,” says Margaret Whelan, executive director, Geneva Centre for Autism.
