Puzzle Piece: Affordable Tech for Kids With Autism

Puzzle Piece is a new tech startup focusing on children with autism and their families. The company has developed its own 7-inch Android tablet, which members get for just $19. Built by the same manufacturers of major brands, the tablet is equipped with front and rear-facing cameras, a battery that lasts up to 5 hours, and 4GB of space.

The mission of Puzzle Piece is to help families affected by autism grow through affordable technology. For an additional $19 per month, members receive 10 exclusive autism apps each month. These include 5 handcrafted social story apps that teach important social, behavior, and community skills; and 5 ad-free, child-friendly games that are sometimes based off popular titles like Cut the Rope and Angry Birds. In addition to these apps, members can download any app they want from the Google Play Store.

Puzzle Piece has sold 394 tablets and delivered 3,900 apps to date. Members are free to cancel their subscription at any time.
