Molly Petersen's curator insight, May 7, 11:10 PM

This article is about the use of technology, specifically tablets and iPads, to reach out to children with autism in the classroom and at home. The article said that technology is a good way to communicate with a loved one with autism and the tablet gives them more independence instead of having a very structured life. The iPads are a great alternative to some of the communication tools that parents with autistic kids use that can cost up to $6,000 to $8,000. This article pertains to our class because it is about how technology is not only affecting students but also with children with disabilities.  

Jacob Ostreng's comment, May 8, 5:32 PM
I think that if a piece of technology can be used to help children with autism learn and communicate that it should be provided at a lower cost.
Gunnar Burkhardt's comment, May 11, 12:06 PM
this type of technology definitely helps in almost all ways of learning, there was an autistic girl who would type on a key board to communicate with her family
