Using iPod Touch and iPad apps with Students Who Have Disabilities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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, e.g., using speech to text, text to speech or icon systems with pictures and sounds. Other areas of focus will include literacy (a wide variety of book apps and phonics/spelling apps), math and number skills, as well as apps that improve social skills (eye gaze, social cues and reminders and video modeling), work on sensory issues (provide a sensory or calming effect/break), and improve or aid 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 (cases, keyboard, stylus, etc.) will also be discussed.
