I love the idea of using technology with ASD students. I have found many different Apps on the iPad that are great to use for reading. A lot of the stories highlight each word which is similar to the teacher using finger pointing as they read. I think the iPad is good for more of an individual activity rather than a whole group activity. The students can search books based on their interest and can interact with the story at their own pace such as hearing a sentence multiple times and going back to a previous page. I also agree that there is a certain time and place for technology and that it is not right for every student. We have to use our best judgement and adapt according to how students react to the technology.

        Exactly! Technology is not going to work with each ASD student, but it is worth the try. I am interested to find out if this idea has been used in any classroom before.

        I agree, I am not fond of it many times, but it is useful. I just referred someone else to a website that I found that was talking about ASD and technology. I just realized that i copied the... more
