Supporting Autism  
Awareness Month.

Making it easier for everyone to communicate.

Accessibility for all means that technology should be simple, easy-to-use, and effective.

No one should feel excluded from our digital world due to a disability. That includes the estimated one in 59 children that have been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).1

Verizon’s mission is to bring people together through technology, and work toward greater accessibility today and every day. In support of Autism Awareness Month this April, Verizon is proud to provide best-in-class products and services available to assist all customers, offer career opportunities for those with disabilities in a diverse, inclusive and empowering environment, and partner with organizations that support and advocate for those with disabilities.

For our customers who may have a developmental disability or care for someone who does, Verizon offers a variety of products that can make day-to-day tasks a little less stressful.

The GizmoWatch provides independence, while still keeping parents in the know.
  • Verizon Smart Family allows smartphones to be monitored and tracked, providing peace of mind. Features of Verizon Smart Family include content filtering, contact management, location services, and more.
  • Google Home is a smart home system that can help families stick to a routine by providing reminders, can play music and answer questions, and can be programmed to provide specific responses to certain questions. For caretakers especially, staying organized can become a challenge. With Google Home, you can set customized reminders, send emails, and create calendar events.
