by Voreis, Grayce, M.S., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2015, 56; 1590449
Abstract (Summary)

This qualitative study was conducted to obtain information regarding education professionals’ (i.e., classroom teachers and speech-language pathologists) perspectives about tablet technology use in classrooms of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (CWASD). Seventeen education professionals from a special day school for CWASD participated in one of four focus groups that provided information and insight regarding pitfalls, successful practices, and critical issues to implementing tablets. Seven themes and twenty-one subthemes emerged based on the participants’ data. The results from this study suggested that education professionals have unique and insightful opinions related to tablets that can be used to inform and potentially improve the use of tablets in CWASD.
