An App Wonderwheel for Students on the Autism Spectrum

An App Wonderwheel for Students on the Autism Spectrum | Digital trends | Scoop.it

The Autisum Transition Handbook was created by grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Delaware Department of Education "to assist individuals with autism spectrum disorders and their families by providing access to the most current and comprehensive information on the transition to adulthood."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 15, 2013 11:35 AM

This app wonderwheel is developed for students on the autism spectrum by an Apple educator Mark Coppin whom is also the Director of Assistive Technology at the Anne Carlsen Center. The wheel is split into six sections that define common learning expectations. Each of the sections then shows common learning traits, followed by app categories and then the apps (each of which is hot linked at the website). The six categories are:

* Behavior

* Communication

* Social Skills

* Need for Sameness or Routine

* Sensory Sensitivity

* Difficulty with Traditional Learning Methods

The link you to the chapter that discusses Assistive Technology. To go directly to the App Wonderwheel use this link http://www.autismhandbook.org/images/4/4c/Appwheel.pdf.

It is often difficult to know which apps to choose when we work with students. This resource may help you determine some apps to investigate for students on the autism spectrum.
