ZAC Browser

I actually thought I had mentioned the following before, so I apologize for not getting this to everyone sooner. This is a tool that needs to be shared with SPED staff.

The ZAC (Zone for Autistic Children) Browser is a web browser specifically designed for autistic students. Developed by a grandpa for his autistic grandson, it takes away all of the unnecessary fluff from websites and puts the same site into a less distracting browser. So the autistic student performs the same task on the same websites as other students. The ZAC Browser can be downloaded to computers or run off of their website. The best part? It's completely free.

I first learned about this from "Teachers Love SMART Boards": SMART Boards and a Browsing Breakthrough
