Research indicates that due to a heightened interest in visual materials combined with strong visual processing capabilities, many individuals with autism are highly attracted to technology and benefit from its use. Please join Christian Karter, MA, Educational Technology Specialist at Monarch Center for Autism, for this edWebinar and learn about both current and emerging technologies that hold great promise for individuals on the autism spectrum. Topics will include:
- Current technologies we have successfully deployed with hundreds of students at Monarch Center for Autism, and how we use them
- Technologies that can be integrated into home life for an individual with autism
- Additional current technologies on the market
- Software and apps that integrate into the day-to-day life of an individual with autism
- Emerging technologies that are currently in development or in the research stage
Resources and tips will be provided, and time will be allotted for a question and answer session. Educators, speech language pathologists, behavior specialists, other therapists, and administrators will benefit from this edWebinar. Join us to learn more about technology that can help support your students with autism.
