Gadg(AID) - S1: What's the future for our Autistic son?

21 Apr 2020 01:03am
He's able to pick up languages like Russian, German and even the Jawi alphabet; to recognise lift brands like Otis and Kone immediately - and he's on the autism spectrum. While his condition could be viewed as his superpower, the flip side means that he struggles to perform simple tasks, like crossing the road, without the guidance of his parents. *2:36: Family photos should be credited to KC Wong
About the Show

Preston Lim, GovTech computer scientist and self-confessed geek, is back at it again, and on a mission to use tech to bring meaningful changes to people’s lives. 
Technology has changed our world, made it more efficient, productive and borderless. But has it done enough in empowering those with disabilities and mental conditions? 
In this series, Preston goes on a search for all kinds of science and tech - from connected smart homes and intuitive wearable devices, to humanised chatbots that bring cheer and comfort - to look for tech that can help empower those struggling with autism, dementia, depression and physical disabilities.
