Ep#126:ProtoChapter Tools4Autism 2

Ep#126:ProtoChapter Tools4Autism 2

November 22, 2013

Episode #126 features a recording of the first draft of the ''Classroom-based Technology Tools'' chapter for the book Technology Tools for Students with Autism published by Brooke's publishing. The chapter was authored by Christopher Bugaj, Melissa Hartman, and Mark Nichols. When the chapter was first drafted, it was written as a story following a fictional student with Autism named Mike through his day describing the tools he and his classmates used to accomplish different tasks. Unfortunately, when the chapter was pieced together with the other chapters in the book it just didn't seem to flow properly. The chapter was re-written to follow a more traditional, essay-like approach. This episode features a reading of the original chapter. In this episode we hear about Mike's afternoon following lunch which starts with a sensory break followed by math, recess, science, and concluding with packing up for the day. http://attipscast.com This episode is sponsored by http://texthelp.com
