Autism Village app is a new platform currently up for funding on Kickstarter that has been described as the Yelp for autism-friendly activities. Autism Village is a free app that allows families to find, add, rate and review places and activities based on their autism friendliness.

Parenting a child with autism is characterized by constantly surveying one's surroundings in order to identify activities, businesses and places that are safe and are not overwhelming. Examples of some of the places rated on Autism Village include playgrounds and parks, schools, therapists and even retail services.

An autism-friendly space can be defined as one that is safe, where people are accepting, helpful and nonjudgmental. This innovative app is a great resource for families.
