What is Zac Browser
Zac (Zone for Autistic Children) Browser is the first browser specially created for children on the autism spectrum. Zac is also the most popular tool ever offered for people with autism, with over 5 Million installations of the software around the world.
Zac Browser is resourceful in the areas of assessment and treatment to say the least. Where therapeutic use of self is key while working in the autistic spectrum population, the program provides a perfectly safe place to build that rapport with the child. On another front, it is timely. As computers are a mainstay in our culture, ZAC Browser is also a safe skill-building tool for using and/or introducing technology in the lives of these kids.

I’m in the military (USAF) in Turkey and was recently at home during a mid tour break. I’ve been away for 5 months and I wanted to say that my son loves Zac Browser and that is has been one of the many tools to help him in his development! My son is so eager to learn and since I was home, he’s been on that thing and been learning how to spell words and say things. He has childhood apraxia and autism, and he’s been doing wonderful. Thank you for your help in my son’s development! Bruce Gunther
My son Ryan is on the ASD spectrum. He has always been interested in the computer and the cbeebies website etc. He would ask for it and want to watch me play the games etc. as he couldn’t do it himself. With the Zac Browser, he can do everything by himself by using the mouse and clicking on the links as there are no set written instructions. He LOVES the Zac browser and can’t get enough of it. There are so many things on it that he never gets bored, and he is learning so much. Because he is a visual learner and doesn’t do well with written instructions, he is able to do everything with the ZAC Browser, which gives him plenty of confidence and loads of enjoyments. Thank you so much for Zac Browser!! It has made a massive difference: he no longer throws the computer on the floor in frustration, because now he CAN do it!!! Fran McGowan
Thanks – I now have the new version installed! It really is a great program. In addition to using it with my son, I work a lot in the schools and with other parents and I recommend it all the time. Nancy Rosenberg, PhD, BCBA – Autism Specialist, BCBA Practicum Supervisor, University of Washington.
I have two children with ASD. They both use Zac Browser every day, and because of this they are advancing more rapidly with speech and learning. It also has been a great source of entertainment for both of them. My Aspergers son Andrew is learning to sound out words and even read them thanks to your wonderful application. And my classic autistic boy has learnt to count and sing. Thank you, John, for making our lives richer and fuller. Monica Bekkers
I work with differently disabled children both through an early intervention program and my church. I have been an advocate for Zac Browser to both parents of children with autism and teachers in the public school system who works with these wonderful children. My friend, who is a teacher, uses Zac Browser as a reward system in her classroom for good behavior! I look forward to reading all of the tremendous testimonies to this hugely successful program!
