Autism Awareness 2016

It's the end of Autism Awareness month, but it's not too late for supports. If you have read my blog so far, you know I am a huge TocaBoca Fan. TocaBoca make fun apps for my students but also for me. Since most of the apps don't have verbal output, there are plenty of opportunities to engage in practical conversation or practice meaningful phrases when playing the apps together.

For Autism Awareness Month, Toca Boca has published this article highlighting tech supports for people with autism. It's a great way to explore other apps for kids with autism. While you are there, check out some of the newer TocaBoca apps and hopefully soon, there will be a new post here on fun ways to elicit language using those too!

Happy Autism Awareness Month and happy playing!
