Students Ivan Pavicic, Ivan Bozic, Marko Marinovic, and Luka Vidacak are the brains behind AuThink, an application that aims to help children with autism, their parents and experts in their daily routine. AuThink aims to help increase the independence of children with autism in their environment, society in general, and day-to-day life through various specialised and individualised tasks (Applied behavior analysis (ABA)), authored by their teachers and parents.

AuThink and AuThink Lite are already available on ‘Windows Store’ and the free download has proved popular already around the world. The application is available on PC, tablet, and smart phone.
