The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism: Autism, Parenting, and Summer: Keeping Busy

The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism: Autism, Parenting, and Summer: Keeping Busy | Communication and Autism | Scoop.it

Great summer activities with some visual supports for scheduling.  You can add using pictures, remnants (tickets, grass, anything from the activities)  to 'journal'  summer activities and then use it to  facilitate conversation about past events. Also, it would be great to use rating scales to see how much the child and the family liked or didn't like an activity and the reasons why, in order to naturally support emotional regulation and verbal/visual reasoning skills.

The Top 17 Free Digital Stotytelling Apps for The iPad

The Top 17 Free Digital Stotytelling Apps for The iPad | Communication and Autism | Scoop.it

One of the things I like the most about iPad is its ability to support all the major e-reader platforms. Its interactivity and audio capabilities have even added a new dimension to read alouds and bedtime stories, making it an ideal device for digital storytelling. And since Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has already featured a List of The Best Digital Storytelling Tools ( web and desktop version ) then we deem it equally important to provide another list of such tools but this time for the iPad.

Shelby Mota's curator insight, April 24, 2013 7:08 PM

I loved this article because it shows the ever-growing world of technology that we have. So, to incorporate technology with a young child who has autism, allows them to develop great motor skills and get hands-on experience with technology.
