Overview

Many students with autism and other disabilities respond well to technology. Many are visual learners. There are many apps available that are free or at a low cost, though how do you choose what are the right ones? Like all strategies used, the selection of apps must be personalized to meet the individual needs of the learner. I will share some great apps I have found to be successful and demonstrate their use. These will cover teaching academic areas, social skills, video modeling, reinforcement, ABA, speech/language therapy, fine motor skills, visual supports, functional life skills, organizational skills, and increasing independence
