Using iPads with Chidren with Special Needs
Tracy Hogden, Director of Assistive Technology, Transition and Autism at CESA will demonstrate how the iPad can change the way kids with special needs learn and relate to the world, and communicate their needs.
In this clear, easy to understand presentation, Tracy will give an overview of the iPad to help familiarize you with settings and features. She’ll walk you through how to download and manage apps, demonstrate the power and ease of video modeling, and highlight the popular apps for communication, behavior and academics. Resources will be provided on where to learn more about apps, including apps designed to help kids with special needs.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn how the iPad can be used to meet goals, as well as behavior and social skills in a fun, non-threatening and non-traditional way.
- Date and Time: Tuesday, October 29th from 6:30pm-8:00pm.
- Location: Partners In Excellence’s La Crosse Site- 901 Caledonia Street
