Autism? There’s an app for that! Actually, there are more than 200 apps for autism, and this book will guide you through them so you can confidently utilize today’s technology to maximize your child or student’s success! Speech Language Pathologist Lois Jean Brady wrote this book in order to educate parents, teachers, and other professionals about the breakthrough method she calls “iTherapy”—which is the use of Apple products (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and various apps (computer applications) in meeting students’ individual educational goals. Lois believes that all persons on the spectrum can learn how to use technology in a way that is relevant to them. She shares important tips on how to use apps responsibly and effectively by maintaining a child-centered, team approach to teaching and learning, taking into account the individual’s interests, strengths/challenges, vision, motor planning, attention, sensory processing, memory, cognitive ability, environment, and access to tools. Lois also coaches adults on how they can use prompting and reinforcement techniques to help establish and generalize skills learned, until students are able to consistently demonstrate the skills in various environments (home, school, etc.). For those who are new to the wonderful world of apps, worry not! Lois provides helpful sections on how to get started, including: Choosing an iDevice, Basic iDevice Operations, Opening an Account, How to Download an App from iTunes, and more! You will be astonished and excited by the number of apps available, and the vast variety of issues they can address: Voice Output Sign Language One-Touch Switch Text-to-Speech Articulation Encouragement Listening and Auditory Processing Language Comprehension Vocabulary Concept Development Video Modeling Social Skills Group Activities Eye Contact and Body Language Hygiene & Pre-Vocational Graphic Organizers & Visual Supports Visual Timers Sound Masking Handwriting Bilateral Coordination Motor Planning Activities of Daily Living Reading Spelling Math Preschool Dysphagia Aphasia, Apraxia & Dysarthria Stuttering Music, Songs & Creativity Information about Autism Eating Gluten Free And more!
