Autism Expressed Named One of the Coolest Startups in Philadelphia!
This month, Philadelphia Magazine named Autism Expressed one of the hottest startups in Philadelphia. The magazine featured Michele McKeone, the Founder and CEO of Autism Expressed, on the cover of the magazine, alongside two other featured founders. The issue articulated the growing and exciting startup scene developing in Philadelphia today.
In the article, Michele advocated that digital literacy is a basic life skill in today’s technology driven society. By not making these skill accessible to children with autism, we are depriving them of a multitude of opportunities in life. Autism Expressed, as the article says
, is about “getting people with autism to get online,” and getting them on safely and with purpose. The goal remains to develop transition skills that will help our teens and tweens with disabilities become independent and engaged members of our communities.
The feature on the cover of Philadelphia Magazine is one of many recognitions Autism Expressed has recently received, including being named Startup of the Year in this year’s Philly Geek Awards.
