Dipper Education: Using Technology for More Effective Learning

 

Dr. Joshua Weinstein, Founder and CEO of ICare4Autism, meets with Sherill Yan Lin at the ICare4Autism Conference in NYC

On Thursday, July 3rd, a special visitor arrived to Shema Kolainu-Hear Our Voices, School and Center for Children with Autism. Sherill Yan Lin, CEO of Dipper Education, a technology company based out of Hong Kong, visited the school to discuss how her programs could be used to further assist those on the spectrum. Dipper Education is focused on becoming a comprehensive service institute in product design and technology for nonverbal individuals. Dipper was both a sponsor and an exhibitor at last week’s ICare4Autism International Autism Conference, showcasing how their company can help autistic individuals learn more effectively. In addition, Sherill Yan Lin gave an informative and exciting presentation regarding communication through technology.

On Thursday, Sherill met with Gili Rechany, MA, SBL, BCBA, Educational Director of Shema Kolainu-Hear Our Voices, to discuss how Dipper can help individuals with autism disorders build better communication skills. Dipper uses communication assistive devices, which can be used alone, or together with an iPad, using a voice output. 

ICare4Autism would like to thank Sherill for her contributions to the ICare4Autism International Autism Conference, and towards the development of programs that help children with autism gain better communication skills. We are looking forward to working with Dipper to collect data for the devices that will most effectively reach children on the autism spectrum.
