COLUMBIA, S.C., April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Accelerations Educational Software (AES), a leading provider of software for individuals with autism and other related disorders, is pleased to announce the addition of Susan DuRant to the newly established position of Director of Education. Ms. DuRant is the parent of a child with autism and brings over 40 years of experience in education.

"Susan will be a great asset to our company and help us to better understand and serve our customers," said Karl Smith, founder of Accelerations Educational Software and a father of a child with autism.

"I am honored to be associated with AES," said DuRant. "The company is highly committed to expanding opportunities for students and using methodologies that are supported by research."

DuRant also said she was attracted to the company's philosophy on pricing its products to make them affordable and cost-effective for a wide range of students.
