Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
Special Learning, Inc., an online comprehensive Autism solutions company, announces the release of its newest ABA Literary Summary “Mobile Technology and Communication.” The latest in their downloadable newsletter updates on ABA research and practice focuses on the hugely popular and rapidly growing learning delivery platform of mobile technologies. With so many new products and applications being introduced to the market, ABA therapists are seeking information and ideas on how to best utilize mobile technologies when teaching and interacting with children with Autism.
Mobile technology is helping those with a lack of ability to easily communicate to increase their level of functioning in society and participate more fully in daily activities. For ABA therapists, educators and parents, mobile technology has become an indispensable learning tool that is greatly enhancing the learning experience for the teacher and student with Autism. The rapidly growing choice of technology and applications, however, is creating a steepening learning curve for ABA therapists seeking to keep up on innovative uses for iPods, cell phones, social networking tools, GPS, instant messaging and a myriad of other mobile communication tools.
This literature summary profiles impressive progress across a range of mobile technologies and applications, including:
- Special messaging technology
- Mobile technology and sign language
- Display of icons in an application
- Mobile location-based social networking
- Video iPods in employment settings
- Video modeling and prompting
Therapists will benefit from summaries that evaluate mobile technologies and applications across a wide range of attributes, including user friendliness, improved and independent communication, screen size and applications, and user mobility.
