Story

It started over ten years ago when a family member was diagnosed with autism.

Like most families, we were confused and scared. At the time, we didn’t fully grasp the meaning of it.

So we did our research and talked with the experts, and soon discovered that autism is not as scary as society depicts it to be (sigh of relief). In fact, people with autism are grossly misunderstood.

So being the practical man that I am, I went about doing what I do best – building new technology and developing new software. But this time, I had a new purpose: to develop a simplified web browser that would give a family member safe access to the internet, empowering him with a sense of personal freedom.

This is how Zac Browser was born. And seeing how easy, helpful and practical it was, we decided to share it with the world – for free. In doing so, other children could enjoy the benefits of a kid-safe web browser along with all its fun and educational content.

It was a success.

Since its launch, more than 6 million people have used Zac Browser. Nowadays, schools and specialized centers also use Zac Browser as a teaching aid that strategically complements their school curriculum.

Today, the lovingly built Zac Browser is managed by United for Autism  , a nonprofit organization that aims to provide the autism community worldwide with 100% free online tools and resources.

Here is what people have to say about Zac:

With the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, all our lives have dramatically changed. In the way we work, learn and socialize. For people with autism, the biggest problem is the change in their routine, which impacts how they interact with the world and the people around them.

So although remote learning is the new educational norm, the risk of people on the spectrum getting left behind with their personal and educational needs is a real possibility.

That’s why more and more parents, guardians, teachers and schools are relying on software like Zac Browser to build and maintain a learning structure at home.

Unfortunately, Zac Browser has its limitations, especially when it comes to homeschooling.

Not surprisingly, over the past year, we’ve received requests from all over the world asking us to create an educational online platform. The goal is to have a software that simplifies the learning process and makes remote learning more interesting for students on the spectrum and easier for teachers.

Based on this valuable feedback, we’ve decided to launch Zac Academy.

Zac Academy is an autism-friendly education software that combines lesson delivery, homework assessments and group interactions.

We are looking to raise 25K$. This sum would allow us to build the structure of Zac Academy within a new version of Zac Browser. The new version will be the most flexible to date, and the ultimate remote learning assistant for people with autism.

While the (post-covid) future is uncertain, Zac Academy would make all the difference to the lives of people on the spectrum.

Could you make a donation to give people with autism access to remote learning?

Please don’t think that any amount is too small. Every little goes a long way and, together, I believe we can reach our goal with ease.

If you have any questions at all – either about Zac Academy, Zac Browser or United for Autism – you can email us below.

In line with United for Autism’s mission, the new Zac Browser and Zac Academy will be offered completely free of charge.

Thank you for helping us bridge the spectrum gap and offering a brighter future for people with autism.

Please share this campaign with your family, friends and anyone who is willing to help the autism community.
