45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp

45+ Teacher Recommended Educational Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp | Teaching non-verbal students | Scoop.it

"Educators are beginning to see the potential of using mobile devices and apps for ongoing professional development as well as to improve literacy and cognitive development for learners. Apps are equipped with several features that motivate learners to create stories, presentations, and projects that are hands-on and use their creativity as well as their critical thinking skills. Once an app is downloaded, many features can be accessed without an Internet connection. Educators can also use various apps at conferences to connect with other educators or capture a presentation. Below are the various apps nominated by teachers for an Edublog Award so they must be worth checking out. Each has a link and a description. Make sure to check out the Edublog Awards for blogs, wikis, and web tools that teachers worldwide have recommended."

Autism Behavioral Consultants Are Helping Children With Difficult Behavior

Autistic behavior can be difficult to understand and relate to. Any parent who has a child on the autistic spectrum will wonder whether their child will ever be able to communicate with them. However, many times, it is not the child who needs to learn how to communicate, but the parent must enter the world of their child. Each child with autistic behavior has specific needs that are individual to them. Autism behavioral consultants can help parents learn how to improve the relationship with their child. Autistic people can be compulsive and obsessional. Children play with objects in a different way. They may line objects up symmetrically and have obsessional behaviors. Children on the autistic spectrum may have problems communicating. They may speak only a few words and miss essential milestones. Autistic signs display themselves in difficulties with verbal and non-verbal communication. Children struggle to socialize with others and play in strange ways. It is a spectrum disorder and children have different degrees of it. At the less severe end is Asperger's syndrome and at the more serious degrees, children will not speak or communicate whatsoever. Although there are different degrees of autistic spectrum disorder they all display the same symptoms. Early diagnosis of the disorder is essential for successful treatment. The earlier that autistic spectrum disorder is diagnosed, the better prognosis. People who have autistic spectrum disorder commonly misunderstand emotions and do not relate to other individuals. Getting the right treatment is an important part of learning how to socially interact with others. Children who have serious problems may need to go to a special school that can support them better. The major communication problem is the language barrier. People who have autistic disorder do not really have any problems with communication. Many people do not understand the disorder and are ignorant to its ways. Autistic children are bright, clever and expressive. They just communicate in a different way. People with Asperger's syndrome often avoid eye contact and might be seen as socially awkward. Professionals can work with individuals to help them understand how other people function. With professional help, a person's life can be improved greatly. Sometimes, there is a need for medication alongside other therapies. Teachers can help children to interact with others and improve their social skills greatly. Children who have autistic disorder have sensitivity to light. They may see things in an obscured way and find bright lights too intense. Bright lights can produce a glare that makes children's eyes work harder. Children may be more prone to getting seizures and epilepsy. Bright lights can trigger epilepsy in an autistic child. Therefore, parents should be aware of this and avoid their children coming into close contact with bright lights. Children on the autistic spectrum respond differently to touch and may not enjoy being cuddled. In time, they can learn to enjoy cuddles off their parents, teachers or other siblings. However, touch does not come naturally and children may not be able to anticipate the contact. Children may be afraid of loud noises and bright lights or colors. A child may get very upset if they hear a noise that is loud or startling. Autism behavioral consultants can help children who are struggling on a daily basis.
