Using iTechnology as Evidence-Based Practice: Visual Directions for Students with ASD


May 16, 2016, Online


While low tech strategies have become standards for programming for students with ASD (e.g., visual schedules, checklists, social narratives, etc.), higher levels of technology tools, particularly the use of iTechnology, can further increase the motivation, attention, and independence of students with ASD. Many previously identified “low tech” visual supports and strategies can now be incorporated into iTechnology, to provide learners with ASD convergent and differential learning through mobile “anytime / anywhere” support and instruction.
