One of the wonderful features of VR is that there's something for everyone. REM5 has had the pleasure of hosting both the South Minneapolis High School Autism Program and students from the Academy of Whole Learning, an entire school devoted to students on the autism spectrum. KSTP stopped by to highlight the value VR can provide to students.
