iPads for Autism Workshop to Benefit Reach for the Stars Learning Center The Soho Gallery for Digital Art New York, NY

Posted May 24 2011 1:22pm

If you have any interest in iPads as a teaching tool for autistics, you likely have run into the name Shannon Des Roches Rosa. Shannon has written about iPads and how the iPad has been a force for good for her son, Leo. The day after IMFAR, Shannon presented at a workshop in San Diego. I was on my way back home so I missed it, but she writes about it as iPad and Autism Workshops—That Work! . That appears to have been a big success and she is preparing to present again, this time in New York on Sunday, June 5.

Here are some of the information on the workshop and Shannon’s previous efforts on the iPad:

Autism and iPad advocate Shannon Des Roches Rosa leads this in-depth workshop on the role of iPads for people with autism. Ms. Rosa will demonstrate how iPads can be a dynamic and cost-effective learning tool for autistic children and adults, and will discuss the additional benefits of the iPad as well as fundraising, research, accessories, and – of course – apps.

So if you’re considering an iPad for your loved one with autism, already have an iPad but aren’t sure how best to use it, or just want to talk about all things iPads & autism, this is the workshop for you!

Workshop proceeds benefit Brooklyn’s Reach for the Stars Learning Center, “dedicated to the education of children with autistic spectrum disorders utilizing every possible tool to further their development.”
