Apps For Learners with Autism takes place July 30, 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. This full-day educator workshop is presented by David Baker, program coordinator at Missouri Assitive Technology.
Touchscreen tablets and apps are helping individuals with autism learn and communicate in new ways that utilize their visual learning strength. Many students have shown keen interest in using the iPad due to the ease of interaction with the device and the visual responses from the apps. The iPad can be used to support communication for non‐verbal students, behavior support, reading, writing, access for students with low vision, and general educational instruction. In this interactive session you will explore a variety of apps and related online tools to enhance the learning and communication for individuals with autism. Each participant will receive one free app (valued at no more than $10) from a suggested list of apps generated by MoAT. Bring Your Own iPad; the workshop is $60 for members and $75 for non-members.
