From the CEC Smart Brief:

Eight Boston-area teenagers with Asperger's syndrome are testing out software loaded onto a personal digital assistant that helps them rehearse social situations and chronicle their interactions with others. The software offers users tips on how to talk to people, including reminders to smile, make eye contract and call the listener by name. The Boston Globe (4/23)
