The Autism Academy of Software Quality Assurance
The AASQA is a social initiative aimed at utilising the unique talents of people with autism in the ICT industry, for the benefit of those with autism, industry and the wider community.
The AASQA, whose directors include Professor Torbjorn Falkmer and Associate Professor Tele Tan (both from Curtin University), utilises the strengths and talents of individuals with autism, in particular their extreme attention to detail, appreciation of predictability and capacity to focus.
An Award Winning Social Initiative
The remarkable work of the AASQA was recognised earlier this year by winning the Most Impactful Social Benefit Award at the prestigious WA Information Technology and Telecommunications Alliance (WAITTA) Incite Awards.
The AASQA is based at the Cisco Internet of Everything Innovation Centre at Curtin University and is sponsored by Engineers Australia, a CORE Industry Partner, and have been working with Clough, also a CORE Industry Partner, to support software applications in the resources sector.
