iPads in Autism Classrooms - Winchester P.S.

Unique to this school: 5 of 7 students also have individual SEA computer.
The iPad has had a dramatic effect in my classroom.  I teach a class of 7 boys in Grade 6 - 8, and they are incredibly engaged by the iPad.  On mornings when the iPad is unavailable for the class, the behaviour in my class changes dramatically.   The students use the iPad to be more independent learners and to focus on positive behaviours.  We continue to explore new ways to integrate the iPad into their learning.
