Apps to Teach Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Wednesday, August 1, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
If you attend the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the edWebinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the Teaching Students with Autism community and go to the edWebinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.
The goal of this edWebinar is to share apps to support learning and engagement of students with autism spectrum disorder. Students with autism spectrum disorder learn best through visuals and with differentiated academic support to meet their individual needs.
In this edWebinar, Frances Amato, STEM Educator and Technology Liaison, reviews her favorite apps for ELA, math, behavior needs and schedules — all educational in nature. They can be utilized throughout the school day to support students’ handwriting, reading, spelling and more. The presentation goes through apps such as ClassDojo, School Schedule, Spellyfish, Simplex Spelling and others.
Pre-K through elementary teachers, school leaders, and paraprofessionals will benefit from attending this event. There will be time for a question and answer session after the presentation.
