In this workshop we will discuss a number of iPod touch and iPad apps that are geared specifically for students with a number of language and cognitive disabilities including autism, dyslexia, language processing and executive function impairments. We will talk about apps that aide with: communication, literacy (book and phonics/spelling), math and number skills, improving social skills (eye gaze, social cues and reminders and video modeling), sensory issues (sensory or calming effect/break), and organization (scheduling, rewards and reminders). Basic iPad information such as how to choose the right app, using your iPad and iPad2 and accessibility features within the iOS system, and iPad peripherals will also be discussed.
