Technology is evolving at a rapid pace, and it can be challenging for educators, therapists, and parents to stay apprised of the latest offerings and trends. This edWebinar will provide you with information on new and innovative technologies that can be used by individuals with Autism in the classroom and at home. This course is led by an educator who is also the parent of a child with Autism.
The presentation includes information regarding:
- Technologies that assist individuals with communication, organization, instruction, prompting, and staying focused
- Current device apps and their uses
- Home automation technologies and how they benefit individuals with Autism
At the end of the presentation, viewers will have a better understanding of these technologies and how they can be implemented. This recorded edWebinar will be of benefit to preK through high school teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, therapists, and aides.
