Cybility Definition

Cybility: "An aptitude for communicating via the computer/I-Pad/Smart Phone, etc, rather than face-to-face/in-person. Frequently found in nonverbal persons on the Autism Spectrum. The CDC now estimates some forty percent of this population is nonverbal."
Don & Chris Fitch, 7/7/2011

The Center is currently conducting a series of studies to demonstrate & quantify this phenomena & its application to Microsoft Office work skills training, employment, & online social networking among non- & minimally verbal adults on the Autism Spectrum.
