iPad Apps to Support Learning and Communication for Those with Autism

The iPad has great potential for engaging and motivating young people. It has excellent in-built accessibility functionality and there are many apps which could provide support for those with autism.

In this webinar, Shirley will demo apps which can support learning and communication as well as apps to alleviate anxiety, to cope with change, to understand a new environment and to control emotions. Both symbol based and text based Alternative Augmentative Communication apps will be explored and participants will be signposted to a wide range of resources and support.

There will be discussion on teaching strategies and how to best support autistic learners to use the iPad. And how to cope with it being removed or switched off for bedtime!
