Instructor: Karina Barley

Topics: Special Education/Needs, Technology & Instructional Strategies
Audience: Pre K-12

It is vitally important for teachers to be aware of how 'autism' is for their students. The autism world can be a literal sensory minefield for students and the school environment needs to be designed where it creates a secure space that is conducive to learning. Children who have Autism have different learning styles and as educators we need to be aware of how to cater to the various styles to develop the best strategies to teach them. The iPad is the perfect technology device to assist students who have autism with sensory issues, visual schedules, visual timers, rewards and generally to create a more harmonious educational environment.

Students' on the Autism Spectrum need lots of visual cues and structure, and the iPad can make achieving this easy, transferable and interchangeable.
