Modern digital technologies such as apps, hardware, and adaptive devices can help persons with autism learn new skills and provide opportunities for practice, application, and problem-solving. These tools can individualize learning, and help learners schedule their day, participate in socialization opportunities with peers close by or across the globe, help and even help them find a voice. We now can know in “real time” what’s been learned or what might need more attention. Learners reap greatest benefit from technology when their teachers apply knowledge of behavioral concepts/principals to select and use these tools. Several digital and hardware technology tools will be reviewed within the categories of instruction/academics, social skills/behavior management, and communication/information. During demonstrations and interactive activities participants will learn about various applications and tools, identify any correspondence with evidence-based behavioral principles, and evaluate if and how each might be useful in their instructional context.

    Volumes of information provided . . . presentation should have been a four hour workshop! Very interesting, but way too short for the volumes that were and could have been provided (some had to be skipped over). Activities were interesting; could benefit from testing beforehand to see if they worked within the large presentation room (vs a classroom) with the lighting and size. Technology, interestingly, got a little in the way. Might have been helpful to have an intern assisting with pulling things up, or running two computers to enable seamless switching between presentation and activities. Definitely worth the time and the money! Many takeaways.
