Description

Children with low-functioning autism have difficulties with social interactions and are limited in their communication skills. Even though traditional therapy methods have been beneficial, studies have shown that computer-based therapies have provided greater improvement in communication skills. The use of computers allows for the creation of a wide range of programs targeting various areas. This presentation outlines four therapy options and their computer programs, methods, and effects on improving language abilities.
