A friend just asked me about coding programs for children with autism. We don’t offer one locally (small town Texas) so I’m doing a little research to see what’s out there. Does anybody know of a coding curriculum and/or program designed to serve learners with a broader set of neurotypes (dyslexia, ADHD, autism, etc.)?
I would also encourage to spark the idea with @saberkhan who is the the education lead at the processing foundation (and is a kind and helpful person also). Perhaps he knows of other ressources.
If not this would be a great thing we can build for future coders. I have ADHD and it took me a long time to learn Processing but it has also been a helpful aid in learning to plan and sequence actions in my life in general.
Wishing you and your students well!
