Course Type: Test Only

Course Abstract

Apps for Autism is a 3-hour test only continuing education (CE/CEU) course (book not included). The book can be purchased from Amazon or some other source.

This CE test is based on the book "Apps for Autism" (2015, 436 pages), the ultimate app planner guidebook for parents/professionals addressing autism intervention. There are hundreds of apps for autism, and this course will guide you through them so that you can confidently utilize today’s technology to maximize your child or student’s success. Speech-language pathologist Lois Jean Brady wrote this book to educate parents and professionals about the breakthrough method she calls “iTherapy” - which is the use of mobile technology and apps in meeting students’ individual educational goals.

For those who are new to the wonderful world of apps, worry not! This award winning reference will review hundreds of excellent apps, accessories and features organized into 39 chapters for parents and professionals alike. There are also helpful sections of how to choose apps, evidence-based practices, choosing an iDevice, internet safety, a helpful toolbox and much, much more.
