Using video technology to enhance lives. Supplemental DVD included.
"This is an amazing book. The authors do what so many in the autism industry fail to do: they nest their suggestions in a solid understanding of the literature on sensory-movement differences that people with autism tell us circumscribe their experience and their performance. From iPads to iPhones, Flip videos to skyping, social networking to TV shows, they guide us through example after example of ways to use technology to truly personalize supports and accommodate the unique needs of individual learners in real life situations. --Anne M. Donnellan, PhD, director of the University of San Diego Autism Institute; professor emerita, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
It is essential for self-advocates, professionals and family members to have consistent access to learning technology information that is evolving faster than one and keep up with. This person-centered, wonderful book clearly accomplishes just that. I couldn't put it down, and you won't either. Lights! Camera! Autism! heralds a new realm of achieving learner participation in the classroom and the community."--Patrick Schwarz, PhD, National-Louis University, Chicago, author of From Disability to Possibility: The Power of Inclusive Classrooms, and co-author with Paula Kluth of three books, You're Welcome, Just Give Him the Whale, and Pedro's Whale.
