We focus on its many applications and describe how vestibule (job/task) and social skills training, as well as anxiety reduction and desensitization techniques, are being enhanced and made accessible to persons with special needs.

Virtual reality is a computer technology that replicates an environment, real or imagined, and simulates that environment in a way that allows for user interaction. VR holds enormous promise with respect to treatment and education.

Join us for Part II of this lively conversation!
