A note from Randall Palmer:
I have been running a series of workshops entitled “Increasing independence for Students with Autism using iPod and iPad Technologies.” I have posted a “livebinder” with links to all of the apps that I demonstrate (along with a few that I don’t have time to demonstrate) at http://www.livebinders.com/play/play_or_edit?id=247178
I would like to highlight a few apps that may be of interest to your listeners:
1) Sosh- At $39.99, the Sosh app provides a suite of therapeutic topics that can help an individual with Aspergers learn to manage their issues independently. There is a full-featured trial version called Sosh light that can be used for 7 days to try out the program.
2) Video Scheduler- this app provides an easy-to-use interface for designing video models. The program is relatively new, and new features are planned for future releases.
3) Chorepad- This is a kid-friendly checklist that can be used for designing activity schedules. Chorepad can also be used to implement a reinforcement system by identifying when a child has “earned” a reward.
