Sosh provides many of the tools used in cognitive and behavioral therapy, and provides students with an opportunity to work independently to resolve their challenges. $39.99. Suggested grade level: middle school and up.
  • **Clicker Docs**: An assistive word processor that can support students with a variety of disabilities, Clicker Docs uses word-prediction technology to offer students spelling and grammatical suggestions to correct their writing. Synthesized speech allows students to review their work by listening for auditory cues. Teachers can set up word banks to provide students with advanced vocabulary. Finally, Clicker Docs integrates with Dropbox to provide secure cloud storage and document-sharing. $28.99. Suggested grade level: elementary school and up.
  • **SymbolSupport**: This assistive word processor automatically translates words into pictures and symbols, a task that is especially helpful for students with cognitive disabilities. Users can create new documents or copy and paste work from other apps into SymbolSupport, and the program will convert the text into symbols. The developer, Attainment Company, also markets a free SymbolSupport Viewer app that allows users to receive, read, store, and print documents created by the full version of the program. $59.99. Suggested grade level: all ages. Read more at http://thejournal.com/articles/2013/06/30/the-top-10-ipad-apps-for-special-education.aspx#brPlX0sdApLhODAP.99
  • **Time Timer**: Students with special needs often have difficulty with the concept of time. For any particular task, the Time Timer app provides a visual representation of the time remaining that is easily recognizable without the need to understand clocks or numbers. $2.99. Suggested grade level: all ages.
  • **iReward**: Anyone who has worked in the field of special education has probably seen motivational earning charts (sometimes called point sheets). These teacher-created charts sometimes feature stick-on Velcro pictures or whiteboard checklists. While they can be highly motivating and effective, traditional earning charts are also stigmatizing, especially for mainstreamed students. There is no mistaking that the child carrying the chart to class is “different” from the rest of the students. iReward changes all that. Using an iPod, iPad, or iPhone, teachers can set up a variety of different earning charts for one student or many students—all of which can be kept as private as the student wishes. An extra plus for the teacher: Gone are the days of laminating and cutting out photos to attach to an earning chart. With iReward, educators simply use the internal camera or Google Images search to find an appropriate image. $4.99. Suggested grade level: elementary school.
  • **Read2Go**: To understand Read2Go, you must first understand what Bookshare is all about. Bookshare.org provides electronic copies of books and periodicals for readers with print disabilities. The books are downloaded in an electronic form that can be easily modified to meet the needs of readers with diverse disabilities. This can mean altering font, size, color, and even using text-to-speech technology to provide read-aloud capability. Bookshare is currently available free of charge for US students with qualifying disabilities, thanks to a grant by the Department of Education. Read2Go is an assistive technology book reader that uses text-to-speech technology to read books aloud. Read2Go’s integration with Bookshare makes locating and downloading electronic textbooks easy, provided you have a qualifying Bookshare account. $19.99. Suggested grade level: elementary school and up.
  • **ConversationBuilder**: ConversationBuilder is a must-have application for every speech language pathologist. This app prompts students through each stage of an interactive conversation and records their spoken responses. At the end of each session, ConversationBuilder plays back the entire conversation at a natural pace so that students can hear themselves successfully exchanging comments with their virtual peers. Recorded conversations can be stored and even e-mailed to teachers and parents as documentation of student progress. $19.99. Suggested grade level: elementary and middle school.
  • **Proloquo2Go**: As one of the first augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) applications made for iOS devices, Proloquo2Go has been around long enough that its bugs have been worked out and it has developed a strong user base. It provides an easy-to-use “voice” for individuals who cannot otherwise speak. One very important feature of Proloquo2Go is its ability to work on iPod, iPad, and iPhone platforms. For users with fine motor or visual disabilities, the large screen of an iPad may be the best interface. For other users, the portability of an iPod Touch or iPhone can support independence in the real world. $219.99. Suggested grade level: all ages. Read more at http://thejournal.com/Articles/2013/06/30/The-Top-10-iPad-Apps-for-Special-Education.aspx?Page=2#2U8VmX61meox15fI.99
  • **Pictello**: Stories come to life in this app that allows students and teachers to create multimedia stories and presentations using pictures from the iPad photo library. Audio for Pictello can be produced using a text-to-speech engine, or can be recorded by a teacher or student. For those working with students on the autism spectrum, Pictello is a great tool for creating multimedia social stories. $18.99. Suggested grade level: all ages.
  • **Video Scheduler**: This app is a cross between an activity schedule and a video model. Like most activity schedule applications, it allows users to create checklists identifying the individual tasks required to accomplish a goal or objective. What sets Video Scheduler apart, however, is the option to include a still photo or video segment that demonstrates how each step in the task is completed. There is a wealth of research supporting the use of both activity schedules and video models with students on the autism spectrum and other students who may struggle with time and task management. Video Scheduler empowers students to work independently with little or no prompting from teachers or job coaches. $12.99. Suggested grade level: elementary school and up.

Do children with autism learn to read more readily by computer assisted instruction or traditional book methods? A pilot study.


The study evaluates the progress of eight children aged 3-5 years with autism attending a specialist teaching unit in their development of reading skills in two conditions: computer instructed learning and book based learning. The authors developed a direct observation schedule to monitor autistic behaviours using computerized techniques. The children were matched by age, severity of autistic symptomatology and number of spoken words. They were initially randomly allocated to the computer or book condition and crossed over at 10 weeks.

Effectiveness of a multimedia programme and therapist-instructed training for children with autism


The present study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of an interactive multimedia training programme and a conventional therapist-instructed training in improving the learning behaviours of children with autism. A multiple-subject, single case-study time-series research design was adopted in the study. Six children with autism, aged 2 years 4 months to 2 years 10 months, were recruited by convenience sampling. They attended a 12-session training programme on basic concepts (e.g.

Brief report: vocabulary acquisition for children with autism: teacher or computer instruction.


This study examined the impact of computers on the vocabulary acquisition of young children with autism. Children's attention, motivation, and learning of words was compared in a behavioral program and an educational software program. The educational software program was designed to parallel the behavioral program, but it added perceptually salient qualities such as interesting sounds and object movement. Children with autism were more attentive, more motivated, and learned more vocabulary in the computer than in the behavioral program.

Video Self-Prompting and Mobile Technology to Increase Daily Living and Vocational Independence for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders


Three male high school students with autism spectrum disorders participated in this study. Vocational and daily living skills were taught using video prompting via an iPhone. Specifically, using a washing machine, making noodles, and using a copy machine were taught. A multiple probe design across behaviors replicated across participants was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the intervention. Results indicate that the three participants increased performance across all behaviors by increasing the percent of steps performed independently.

Brief report: vocabulary acquisition for children with autism: teacher or computer instruction.


This study examined the impact of computers on the vocabulary acquisition of young children with autism. Children's attention, motivation, and learning of words was compared in a behavioral program and an educational software program. The educational software program was designed to parallel the behavioral program, but it added perceptually salient qualities such as interesting sounds and object movement. Children with autism were more attentive, more motivated, and learned more vocabulary in the computer than in the behavioral program.

Do children with autism learn to read more readily by computer assisted instruction or traditional book methods? A pilot study.


The study evaluates the progress of eight children aged 3-5 years with autism attending a specialist teaching unit in their development of reading skills in two conditions: computer instructed learning and book based learning. The authors developed a direct observation schedule to monitor autistic behaviours using computerized techniques. The children were matched by age, severity of autistic symptomatology and number of spoken words. They were initially randomly allocated to the computer or book condition and crossed over at 10 weeks.

Brief report: vocabulary acquisition for children with autism: teacher or computer instruction.


This study examined the impact of computers on the vocabulary acquisition of young children with autism. Children's attention, motivation, and learning of words was compared in a behavioral program and an educational software program. The educational software program was designed to parallel the behavioral program, but it added perceptually salient qualities such as interesting sounds and object movement. Children with autism were more attentive, more motivated, and learned more vocabulary in the computer than in the behavioral program.

Do children with autism learn to read more readily by computer assisted instruction or traditional book methods? A pilot study.


The study evaluates the progress of eight children aged 3-5 years with autism attending a specialist teaching unit in their development of reading skills in two conditions: computer instructed learning and book based learning. The authors developed a direct observation schedule to monitor autistic behaviours using computerized techniques. The children were matched by age, severity of autistic symptomatology and number of spoken words. They were initially randomly allocated to the computer or book condition and crossed over at 10 weeks.

Do PDAs enhance the organization and memory skills of students with cognitive disabilities?


The project studied the on-time behavior of 35 students with intellectual disabilities (ID) or traumatic brain injury (TBI) under three conditions ? times and tasks list, paper planner, and two different personal data assistants (PDAs). Students participated for two 4-week periods, receiving one morning reminder during Period 1 and no reminders during Period 2. Students were on time more often using a PDA compared to a list (p < .024) or a planner (p < .002). Students were on time 50% more often in Period 1 with a single daily morning reminder as compared to no reminder across all conditions.

A Context-Senitive Device to Help People with Autism Cope with Anxiety


We describe a smartphone application that helps people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) cope with anxiety attacks. Our prototype provides a one-touch interface for indicating a panic level. The device's response - to instruct, soothe, and/or contact carers - is sensitive to the user's context, consisting of time, location, ambient noise, and nearby friends. Formative evaluation unearths a critical challenge to building assistive technologies for ASD sufferers: can regimented interfaces foster flexible behaviour?

A Web-Based Tutorial for Parents of Young Children with Autism: Results from a Pilot Study


Early intervention can significantly improve long-term outcomes for children with autism. Unfortunately, many children do not receive early intervention services due to a critical shortage of trained professionals in this area. To bridge this gap, we evaluated a Web-based parent training tutorial (Enhancing Interactions), based on evidence-based practices and utilizing the Web-based platform to maximize learning. Methods: Twenty-three parents with a child between 18 months and 6 years with an autism spectrum disorder participated.

Using Virtual Environments for Teaching Social Understanding to 6 Adolescents with Autistic Spectrum Disorders


Six teenagers with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) experienced a Virtual Environment (VE) of a café. They also watched three sets of videos of real cafés and buses and judged where they would sit and explained why. Half of the participants received their VE experience between the first and second sets of videos, and half experienced it between the second and third. Ten naïve raters independently coded participants’ judgments and reasoning.

Do PDAs enhance the organization and memory skills of students with cognitive disabilities?


The project studied the on-time behavior of 35 students with intellectual disabilities (ID) or traumatic brain injury (TBI) under three conditions ? times and tasks list, paper planner, and two different personal data assistants (PDAs). Students participated for two 4-week periods, receiving one morning reminder during Period 1 and no reminders during Period 2. Students were on time more often using a PDA compared to a list (p < .024) or a planner (p < .002). Students were on time 50% more often in Period 1 with a single daily morning reminder as compared to no reminder across all conditions.

Do children with autism learn to read more readily by computer assisted instruction or traditional book methods? A pilot study.


The study evaluates the progress of eight children aged 3-5 years with autism attending a specialist teaching unit in their development of reading skills in two conditions: computer instructed learning and book based learning. The authors developed a direct observation schedule to monitor autistic behaviours using computerized techniques. The children were matched by age, severity of autistic symptomatology and number of spoken words. They were initially randomly allocated to the computer or book condition and crossed over at 10 weeks.

A Web-Based Tutorial for Parents of Young Children with Autism: Results from a Pilot Study


Early intervention can significantly improve long-term outcomes for children with autism. Unfortunately, many children do not receive early intervention services due to a critical shortage of trained professionals in this area. To bridge this gap, we evaluated a Web-based parent training tutorial (Enhancing Interactions), based on evidence-based practices and utilizing the Web-based platform to maximize learning. Methods: Twenty-three parents with a child between 18 months and 6 years with an autism spectrum disorder participated.

Do adolescents with autistic spectrum disorders adhere to social conventions in virtual environments?


The potential for using virtual environments (VEs) in educational contexts for people with autistic spectrum disorders (ASDs) has been recognized. However, very little is known about how people with ASDs interpret and understand VEs. This study aimed to investigate this directly with a group of 12 adolescents with ASDs, each individually matched with comparison participants.

Using Virtual Environments for Teaching Social Understanding to 6 Adolescents with Autistic Spectrum Disorders


Six teenagers with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) experienced a Virtual Environment (VE) of a café. They also watched three sets of videos of real cafés and buses and judged where they would sit and explained why. Half of the participants received their VE experience between the first and second sets of videos, and half experienced it between the second and third. Ten naïve raters independently coded participants’ judgments and reasoning.

Brief report: vocabulary acquisition for children with autism: teacher or computer instruction.


This study examined the impact of computers on the vocabulary acquisition of young children with autism. Children's attention, motivation, and learning of words was compared in a behavioral program and an educational software program. The educational software program was designed to parallel the behavioral program, but it added perceptually salient qualities such as interesting sounds and object movement. Children with autism were more attentive, more motivated, and learned more vocabulary in the computer than in the behavioral program.

Comparison of the Effects of SMART Board Technology and Flash Card Instruction on Sigh Word Recognition and Observational Learning


This study compared the effectiveness of SMART Board, interactive whiteboard technology and traditional flash cards in teaching reading in a small-group instructional arrangement. Three students with moderate intellectual disabilities were taught to read grocery store aisle marker words under each condition. Observational learning (students learning other group members' words) was also assessed across each condition. The effectiveness of the two procedures was evaluated using an adapted alternating-treatments design (AATD) across two conditions and replicated across students.
