Many special ed students lack basic organisational skills; listed here ten apps to develop these skills.

Jim Harmon's curator insight, January 27, 2:03 PM

While this topic focuses on literacy, I believe many issues of illiteracy center on this very idea of executive functioning and metacognitive abilities.

Teresa Pearl's curator insight, February 11, 4:12 PM

We had a few PD's on executive functioning and kids this year. This is a great site with suggestions for apps and descriptions or students with executive functioning issues.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, October 31, 2013 8:06 AM

"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!

The folloing list of applications provide opportunities for autistic students to apply practical skills and process technologies and resources to meet current and future needs (ACARA, 2013). These skills include developing 21st century life skills such as communication.
