In association with the Autism Society of San Diego, I will be presenting a workshop titled iPod touch and iPad for Children with Autism. It will be held on Saturday, July 31 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the Church of Rancho Bernardo. Here is information from the SD Autism website regarding the workshop:
In this workshop, parents and professionals will learn how to implement iPod touch and iPad for children with autism. They will learn basics regarding the devices and iTunes, in addition to an evaluative framework for selecting applications. Applications for the following areas will also be discussed and demonstrated: AAC, social skills, literacy, math, data collection, behavior management, music, songs, art and games. There will be an in depth look of the widely known AAC app, Proloquo2Go.
I will present the above information for all skill levels. The content will address the needs of children with Autism and other disabilities. Slides and demonstrations will include user-friendly discussions of implementing apps for children with special needs.
The registration cost starts at just $20 for breakfast, 3 hours of presentation time, and presentation materials. Online registration is available here.
