Description

Technological advances have greatly enhanced the lives of those individuals who have cognitive, physical and visual perceptual challenges. In this intermediate level course, therapists will explore and learn how the Apple iPad can be used as a therapeutic tool in the clinical setting with young and older persons of varying abilities. Apple accessibility features and resources for apps that target specific areas such as functional skills facilitation, visual processing/motor skill development, and development of learning skills, environmental management, and communication skill development are discussed. Peripheral supports for the iPad such as mounts, switch access, styluses, bluetooth speakers, and iPad cases are presented. Ten case studies are included throughout this course for clients of all ages, including both children and adults, in order to identify what built-in accessibility features, apps, and peripherals would assist clients with varied needs. This course is a valuable and comprehensive resource for all OT and PT clinicians. Course includes links to video presentations to further enhance and explain aspects of how the iPad can be utilized. ------------------------------------------------------------COURSE OBJECTIVES- After studying these course materials, you should be able to: 1.

Course Reviews

I really enjoyed this course. I found the information practical and useful for many disciplines. The addition of the videos was informative. Much of the material presented is easier to understand when it is used. The videos simulated their use.

I appreciate reviewing all the new features with the iOS7 and iOS8 systems. The videos were good for visually understanding the tools. I appreciate the lists of tools for the different disability categories. The lists of apps and resources is very valuable as well This was very informative and I will be applying this information right away.
