Integrating Educational Apps and Classroom Lessons for Students with Autism and Special Needs

     "A new chapter may bring autism educational apps to a lesson plan near you.
Educational Apps have been showing great success with many students with special needs and autism. They are motivating learning tools. Although, the numbers of users of mobile tablets are increasing by the hour, most educators and parents are struggling with where to start when it comes to choosing apps.

AutismClassroom.com’s book, Lesson Ideas and Activities for Young Children with Autism and Related Special Needs: Activities, Apps and Lessons for Joint Attention, Imitation, Play, Social Skills & More (2010), matches apps to the actual instructional lesson. The book already provided teachers and parents with over 100 starting points and beginning places for creating meaningful activities for pre-school and elementary-aged students with autism and related special needs. Each theme unit provided activity based ideas specific to Joint Attention, Imitation Skills, Communication, Self-Help Skills, Independent Skills, Pre-Vocational Skills, Social Skills, Play Skills, Sensory Involvement, Basic Concept Mastery, Vocabulary/Literacy, Fine Motor, and Gross Motor. However, just recently, the newly added “Apps” chapter highlights ten educational apps in each skill area. The over 100 highlighted apps can be easily incorporated into lessons and activities for young children with autism and special needs."
