Did you know that autism affects 1 out of 68 children? April is Autism Awareness Month, and thinking about educators made me wonder how it affects them and their students.
With the increased push to use technology in the classroom, I figured that there had to be technology out there to help children with autism and their teachers. I did some research and found a piece of technology that could be very beneficial that I want to pass along to you.
The SmartEdPad™ is a tablet that includes apps that have been selected by qualified professionals. Because it’s designed to “focus on a broad range of skills,” the SmartEdPad would be a great tool to start with. It does cost a bit more than your average tablet, but if it’s a good fit for your student, it could be a worthwhile investment.
What are some ways technology has helped meet your student’s educational needs?
