Millions of iPhone users around the world use Siri to set alarms, ring friends and find out what the fox says. One thing Apple probably didn’t foresee, is the positive impact for people with autism.
Siri is helping people with autism to communicate more effectively, as one mum found out when her son started using the app. With this benefit only just being realised, we look at how people can use this to help their relatives with disabilities…
