Gloria: Apps and Resources for Young Children with Special Needs

03/06/2012 12:11

Cristi Saylor (Deaf and Hard of Hearing Itinerant teacher from the San Diego County Office of Education) and I attended the Cal Ed 2012 Conference this past weekend. Our presentation--Insights on Using the iPad for Students with Special Needs--was based on our experiences working with students who are deaf-blind, deaf, and hard of hearing with special needs.

After an introduction on how to use the iPad, Cristi and I discussed its advantages, disadvantages and considerations when using it with this population, and presented apps (applications) that have proven to work. We also showed some video clips of children using different apps and a sequence on the initial stages of using the iPad as a learning tool. 

Below is a list of the apps and resources we discussed with the audience. I have also included the resources the audience shared with us.
