As the rate of children being diagnosed with autism continues to climb, the challenges inherent in meeting the individual needs of each child become more difficult. Educators find themselves getting squeezed tighter and more painfully between a rock (mandates) and a hard place (dwindling resources). Technology plays an essential role in engagement, education, and opening doors to a wider world of experiences for children on the Autism Spectrum. Join us as we discuss how technology can transform the autism classroom. A look at research, hardware, software, apps and more as we shape the future through innovative technology for the child with autism.
