Apps for Fostering Independence at Every Age:
Technology for Home, Classroom, Community, and Work

 

Featured speakers: Melanie Johnson, BRITE Success, LLC and Mark Coppin, Anne Carlsen Center, Jamestown, ND.

App technology is transforming the lives of individuals of all ages with autism. For those new to the world of apps, figuring out where to begin can be a daunting task, and even intermediate touch technology users will find value in learning how to effectively navigate through the App Store and iTunes.

During this workshop:

  • Learn how to select the appropriate touch device by defining how it will be used.
  • Understand how interest- and age-focused apps function and which apps best fit the needs and unique learning style of the user.
  • Discover a variety of apps for communication, organization, planning, storytelling, reading and writing, behavioral support, and much more.

At the end of the workshop, you will have a better understanding of device management, apps, and available accessories.
