iPad technology in the classroom
iPad technology can be a great tool for individuals with autism of all ages. Using an iPad has so many benefits. Some parents & schools use iPad’s as a way to help reduce behaviour, some use it as a reward incentive and many are using iPad technology for learning and communication.
At Amazing K our focus lies with behaviour management, skills acquisition & communication and we therefore use iPad technology extensively in our Curriculum.
The iPad Curriculum focuses on aspect such as:
- Schedules (toilet training, dressing, brushing hair, brushing teeth and more)
- Functional Academics (numeracy and literacy)
- Generalization activities – helping the child understand aspects like puzzle building on the Ipad and then showing the child of they can build actual puzzle
- Pre-writing skills
- Logic and Reasoning
- Sharing and teamwork
- Self help & Life Skills
- Strategic thinking
- Phonics and Reading
