This workshop will focus on the use of technology to support learning for children with developmental disabilities. Participants will see how BoardmakerPlus can be used to create meaningful, interactive learning activities. Participants will be provided with information regarding access of pre-designed activities for BoardmakerPlus, as well as resources for learning how to create their own activities. Participants also will be introduced to a myriad of apps for the iPad that can be used to address a variety of needs or skill areas, including: cause and effect, fine motor and printing, augmentative and alternative communication, visual support strategies, social skills development, early learning skills and concepts, and literacy and math development. Participants will receive a list of apps to address a variety of learning needs, along with resources for finding and evaluating apps.
