About a month after visiting DC for portfolio meetings, I got an email from Charlie at Education Week with my first assignment for the publication. For a story in a package on the use of technology in education for students with special needs, I photographed Jack Ursitti, a seven-year-old with autism who uses an iPad for language learning and leisure activities. I spent a couple of hours with Jack as he worked with a therapist and teacher at his home outside of Boston.
The story is behind Education Week’s paywall, though you can see an excerpt here: Virtual Education Targets Rise of Autism
