This webinar will focus on outlining a wide range of apps that will support students in your classrooms with Autism.

Many students with Autism have difficulties across three main areas: Communication, Social Skills and Behaviour. This webinar tackles apps as well as practical strategies for each of these areas.

Part 1 of the webinar will target Communication. We will look a range of apps that provide an Alternative and/or Augmentative Communication (AAC) system for students with little or no speech. We also look at some interactive and structured apps that aim to extend and develop vocabulary and comprehension. Session Length 1hr 7mins

Part 2 of the webinar focuses on Social Development. First we look at apps that can develop the early social skill of interaction and engagement. Then we tackle the area of Social Skills training, investigating apps that can support understanding and knowledge of: feelings/emotions; friendships; conversations; conflict resolution; classroom social behaviour. Session Length 1hr 4mins

Part 3 looks at Behaviour, with a particular focus on Apps to create and implement Visual Tools for positive behavioural support. Also we take a quick look at some apps for data collection, to help monitor and track behaviour in students with Autism. Session Length 36mins

    How do I view these videos? I’m signed in but they still appear to be locked. In Vimeo I can only get the preview.
