Autism Today

The Akiva Metaverse Series

Akiva started when two fathers of neurodivergent children decided to
improve the state of global education for children with special needs.
This passion project has been in the works for the last several years,
however the technology was not mature enough to realize the vision of
the co-founders. With the proliferation of virtual reality and the
hard work of a team of the most passionate and experienced game
developers, data scientists, data engineers, security engineers, cloud
engineers, PHD psychology advisors, designers, and quality assurance
engineers, it is finally possible to create the learning ecosystem –
AKIVA on the Oculus Quest 2 VR Platform.

 

 

Akiva Episode 1: Alex Landa

Alex Landa

We know first-hand how the power of love for one’s child can make a
parent do amazing things. Alex Landa is a great example of that. He
refused to settle for what doctors and specialists told him to accept
and changed the world… or rather, created a world… to help his
autistic son and others like him become the greatest version of
themselves.

At the forefront of technology, using Virtual Reality within the
Oculus Quest 2 platform, Alex was able to create an engaging and
immersive method of teaching people touched by autism in the highly
visual way of learning they tend to excel at. Wisely choosing a
platform that allows users to control the software without the use of
controllers, the Akiva Metaverse, named after Alex’s autistic son, is
open to people with a wide variety of behaviours and capabilities. And
coupled with the companion app, parents, therapists and aides can
assist the users progression while watching them in real-time.

The Akiva Metaverse has programs designed for younger kids and older
kids and is constantly creating new modules to allow the user to
progress at their own pace, In their own time. Check out the
