Innovative Uses of EDI at MGH Aspire

At Aspire, part of the MassGeneral Hospital for Children, clinicians developed an innovative approach for integrating EDI into therapeutic programs for kids with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As part of a daily “check-in” activity, participants each transform a common image to answer a question such as: “How was your week?”. Frequently, individuals with ASD have difficulty answering questions like these through language alone. Through EDI, Aspire clinicians find participants more expressive and engaged – both important aspects of successful therapy for ASD.
