Determining the most appropriate technological resources for children with autism and/or intellectual (learning) disabilities.
Most children with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) also have an Intellectual Disability (ID) – or Learning Difficulty. However, this group is hugely under-represented within research and knowledge regarding this specific group can be hard to find.
On this course you will get more of an understanding of ASD and ID specifically. Then we will explore how technology can be used to best support this group, introducing you to the SMART-ASD app that identifies the skills and needs of children with ASD and ID so that the most suitable technologies can be identified to support them.
What will you achieve?
Explore the nature of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Intellectual Disability (ID)
Discuss how technology can best support children with ASD/ID
Identify the most appropriate technology to support children with ASD/ID
Assess the needs of children with ASD/ID using the SMART-ASD app
Who is this course for?
The course is perfect for parents, carers and practitioners. You do not need any prior experience of this subject as it is intended to be an introductory course. This course is aimed at all those interested in finding out more about autism and intellectual (or learning) disability in children, and how technology can support them.
The course is useful for all ages, though the majority of the research has focused upon younger people with autism, and this is reflected in the MOOC.
