Apps for Students with Autism

by Kristie Burk

Last week at Pete & C, I had the pleasure of attending a session featuring Randy Palmer, a special education and computer expert at The Children’s Institute, a school in NJ for students with autism and related disabilities. Working with students with autism spectrum disorder to do activities like creating multi-media stories with Garage Band, Palmer also strives to help other educators use assistive technology to promote independence.

To that end, he has compiled an excellent list of Apps to Support Students with Autism in the Home, School, & Community. The LiveBinder includes links to apps for communication, social skills, activity schedules, self-regulation and more. These resources can support a variety of students, so check them out!
