Using Virtual Technology to Enable Students with Autism to Interact with Peers and Therapists

Posted: Friday, December 10, 2010 - 11:48


This article focuses on reasons for and therapeutic success when using virtual technology for students with autism and other developmental delays. Examples include using virtual training when a student has to miss academic class time for therapy time, or providing peer interaction for children in a remote location or unable to attend school. Parents, teachers, and therapists can set up a child’s individualized educational program (IEP) when all are not in the same location. In addition, there are many school districts that cannot afford certain scholastic and therapeutic opportunity for their students, but can take advantage of video-conferencing.

School districts successfully using distance learning for children with disabilities include: Broward County Public Schools (FL); Texas Education Agency; Kentucky School for the Deaf; and New Mexico School for the Deaf.
