Providing online training for students with autism and other special educational needs is a major challenge that COVID-19 has made urgent.

Driven by the Orange Foundation and the Autonomous University of Madrid and taught on the UAM's online training platform, this 4-month course is the most comprehensive training available today on the use of technology for people with autism.
With theoretical and practical content, the course consists of 16 units ranging from related concepts to the use of mobile devices for research in the field of autism technology.
The course focuses basically on apps, but not forgetting other platforms such as computer programs, web pages, touch screens, whiteboards... nor the latest in robotics or wearable devices.
The materials have been developed by a team of 25 professionals who are experts in autism and technology, and students who pass the evaluation tests obtain a UAM certificate.
Children who have access to technological devices are getting even younger which has meant that among the information they can receive may also include pornography. Which produces data as chilling as: 10% of internet porn consumers are under the age of 10. Furthermore, according to Pornhub, the world's largest pornography website, pornographic content during the first few weeks of confinement consumption increased by 61.3% in Spain. Faced with this picture, many experts warn that if we do not offer early sex education from homes, schools... our children will be educated by pornography, with the consequences. We will talk about this subject to the sexologist Lara Avargues, who will give us guidelines on how to address this issue with our children.
