Using iPads to support students with Autism Spectrum Disorders This information has been compiled by the Spectronics Consultancy Team. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you need any further information....
Spectronics is a great resource for all things AT. Check out their recent resource for communication for ASD.
"Students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder have a wide variety of strengths and abilities that make their communication and learning skills complex, diverse and sometimes challenging. Many of their difficulties can be broken into the areas of Communication, Social Skills and Behaviour. We know that students with Autism are strong visual learners, which makes the iPad a perfect instructional tool to support communication, social skills development and positive behaviour."
The Spectronics team has done an outstanding job in compiling resources, apps and information on ways to support autistic learners in the areas of Communication, Social Skills and Behaviour.
Many thanks to Spectronics and the amazing work that they do to support all learners!
