Actually, there are more than 200 apps for autism. This book will guide you through them, so you can confidently utilize today's technology to maximize your child or student's success Speech Language Pathologist Lois Jean Brady wrote this book to educate parents, teachers, and other professionals about the breakthrough method she calls "iTherapy"--the use of Apple products (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and various apps to meet students' individual educational goals. Lois believes that all persons on the spectrum can learn how to use technology in a way that is relevant to them. She shares important tips on how to use apps responsibly and effectively by maintaining a child centered, team approach to teaching and learning. Her approach takes into account the individual's interests, strengths/challenges, vision, motor planning, attention, sensory processing, memory, cognitive ability, environment, and access to tools. Lois also coaches adults on how they can use prompting and reinforcement techniques to help establish and generalize skills learned, until students are able to consistently demonstrate the skills in various environments (home, school, etc.). For those who are new to the wonderful world of apps, worry not Lois provides helpful sections on how to get started, including:

  • Choosing an iDevice
  • Basic iDevice Operations
  • Opening an Account
  • How to Download an App from iTunes
  • and more
