Communication can be demonstrated in various ways, and this is a great way to incorporate technology as well as communicate different skills.
Andrea Coppinger's comment, May 7, 2013 7:14 PM
This is a really neat idea. It can be extremely frustrating when you know what you want to say, but are not sure how to communicate effectively. Also, sign language is very useful for infants so it can benefit the whole family@
Kari Rose's comment, May 9, 2013 2:36 PM
This is a great idea. I agree with Andrea. It can be pretty difficult when you know that what you want to say isnt coming out the way you had planned. I took a sign language class so i know how beneficial it is to know it in a time of need.

When you think about guinea pigs, you don’t necessarily think of their therapeutic value. Yet within a safe school environment, these little critters go to the head of the class when it comes to helping students with autism improve their social skills.

This article is very brief, but it shares the power of animals to help children (autism) with disabilities. This website also provides other articles on autism as well, with links so it has a wide array of reading material for people interesting in different aspects about children with autism (also includes teaching ideas for teachers of children with autism)
