According to The National Professional Development Center (NPDC) many interventions for autism exist, only some have been shown to be effective through scientific research. Interventions that researchers have shown to be effective are called evidence-based practices. Currently, the Center has identified 24 evidence-based practices.

 

Here is a comprehensive list of iPad apps that support evidence based practice for both speech language pathology and autism spectrum disorders. The table is meant for informational purposes only to illustrate how apps support evidence based practice and to use as you determine appropriate.

5. Education teachers and therapists are using ipads to help kids with diseases learn. Every student will have different preferences and individual needs. It is the educational teacher's job to find the best "fit" for each student.

We are all learners. The cartoon speaks volumes.

Mickey Gast's curator insight, February 11, 2014 7:48 PM

Don Breedwell's curator insight, March 26, 2014 8:47 PM

I like to see good change and this looks like the right direction. Going to make the changes in vocabulary now.
