Technology is everywhere and easier than ever to use. New technologies are providing teaching tools that enhance our student’s ability to learn in all developmental domains. Children with autism gravitate toward these devices so it is only natural that we would want to maximize these opportunities. We will review research and explore how to use technology, including video modeling, to maximize our impact on a student’s development and generate solutions for the challenges faced by our students with autism spectrum disorders.
