iPads speak to students with disabilities
Educators gathered in New Hampshire for a four-day camp on using iPads to help students with physical and mental disabilities.
Therese Willkomm, a professor at the University of New Hampshire, highlighted apps that can be used to help students with hearing, vision and speaking impairments.

Apps for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
http://www.autismhandbook.org/images/4/4c/Appwheel.pdf
Apps for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
When looking for apps for students on the autism spectrum (ASD), it is important to look at all educational apps and not just those that are tagged as autism apps.
They have many of the same learning needs that other students have. This list was developed to provide apps based on common learning characteristics and traits that are typical for students with ASD.
It is important to remember that all students learn differently and selecting apps should be based on the unique learning needs of the student.

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student
When Meaghan was six years old, she was diagnosed with a visual impairment. In the eighth grade, she started to notice a decline in her vision. She sought out surgery to repair or delay her vision decline, and while successful, the procedure did not hold for very long.
The following year, Meaghan entered Burlington High School as a freshman. It was decided that she would have a laptop coupled with assistive software programs to assist with her visual impairment.

Can cell phones and touch-type devices like the iPhone, the iPod touch or the iPad be used to enhance learning, communication and entertainment for people with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorders)? Seeing the first worldwide experiences, the feeling is YES!, and even in a very notable way.
For some years now there have been a few specific apps for people with autism (as well as for people with Down’s Syndrome, etc.) based on the iPhone and the iPod touch, many of which are beginning to appear now for the iPad. In addition, there are thousands of educational and entertainment apps, some better adapted than others for people with various disorders. In any case, as with any “new technology”, it will be good to study this thoroughly, to see how to integrate it into the environment of the person with ASD, to test it, to help their creators to improve it, etc.
The purpose of this blog is to work in this direction by collecting information related to the use of visual and tactile technology such as the iPhone, the iPod touch and the iPad for people with ASD.
