From Biology to Apps
Get to Know Chris from Infiniteach
Infiniteach was founded to change the way we educate and support individuals with autism. The staggering increase in the prevalence of autism – up more than 600% in the past two decades alone – has created a void in effective services and products. Furthermore, in the United States, is estimated that we spend $2.4 million dollars in lifetime care for each individual with autism (Autism Speaks, 2012). As the prevalence and costs of autism education continue to rise, Infiniteach knows that it is imperative that we develop comprehensive and cost-effective solutions that help every child on the spectrum. Infiniteach builds technology to connect individuals to the world around them.
Each app they develop is embedded with best practice autism interventions and proven strategies that increase independence and improve quality of life for individuals with autism. We caught up with Christopher Flint to get the inside scoop on his career path and what makes him tick outside of his work at Infiniteach!
He’s excited to expand Infiniteach’s reach.
I’m the co-founder of Infiniteach. We develop technology to help connect individuals with disabilities to their communities. Our mobile apps support inclusive schools, libraries, museums, and soon-to-be dental offices and airports!
He changed his career plans after volunteering with a student with autism.
I was a Biology major in college, then volunteered with a student with autism, loved it, and changed my career. I’ve been in the autism space ever since as a special educator, trainer, principal, and co-founder of Infiniteach.
Christopher and the Inifiniteach crew joined the CLA before the Literacenter opened its doors!
We met Stacy when Infiniteach was working out of 1871, Chicago’s tech start-up space. She introduced us to her newest concept, Literacenter, when it was still a hard hats required construction zone. We met Jimmy and Allison, and just knew this was going to be an awesome space for all things literacy and education in Chicago.
Outside of his professional pursuits …
Christopher has been playing D&D with a group of guys for the last 25 years.
If he could choose a superpower, he would go with “flying, definitely flying”.
