Hi Folks, please spread the word about the following workshop being held by the Massachusetts Speech-Language Hearing Association.
Applying Technology to Support Social and Executive Functioning
Saturday, April 5, 2014, 8:30-3:30, Emerson College, Boston.
This workshop will demonstrate a variety of visual and interactive applications that can be used with students with difficulties in social cognition and executive functioning, particularly with a lens on addressing these issues in the educational environment. Webtools and apps for iPads will be covered, including those helpful for older students struggling to access the curriculum and manage their workload. Participants will have guided practice time throughout the day, as well as opportunities for sharing and collaborating with colleagues.
1. Participants will describe a variety of tools applicable to students at various age levels to support social interaction in the school, community and home settings.
2. Participants will apply applications towards assisting students and parents with executive functioning: planning, organization, behavioral regulation and time management.
3. Participants will align technology tools with specific approaches supporting social and executive functioning, such as Story Grammar Marker® and The Incredible 5-Point Scale.
