New software prepares young autistic adults with practice sessions

The USC Institute for Creative Technologies and the Dan Marino Foundation (DMF) have developed new software that helps prepare young autistic adults for job interviews.

The Virtual Interactive Training Agent (ViTA DMF) is a technology-based solution featuring virtual characters with three different disposition settings, ‘soft touch,’ “neutral,’ and ‘hostile,’ to mimic various interview styles and personalities.
