Overview: A growing body of research reveals that individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a heightened interest in all forms of visual materials. This, coupled with strong visual processing skills, makes individuals with autism excellent candidates to benefit from technology-based instruction. Please join us for a webinar that will discuss current technologies (e.g., hardware, software, apps) that have proven effective with individuals on the autism spectrum. With ten years of experience utilizing technology in a school setting with more than 150 students on the autism spectrum, our speaker will share his intimate knowledge of what works and what doesn't.
In addition to thoroughly investigating the technology, we will discuss how it can be utilized most effectively in both school and home environments. Resources and tips will be provided. We will also identify emerging technologies that are entering the marketplace, and discuss how these will impact individuals with autism.
