Try the Socially Speaking™ Experience….in a Textbook! ETA Spring 2015
There's no question that research re: ‪#‎autism‬ and treatment methods for kids with ‪#‎specialneeds‬ is important. But documentation/information about PRACTICAL ‪#‎strategy‬ ideas and FUNCTIONAL treatment goals/materials is CRUCIAL, especially for today's parents/professionals in ‪#‎specialeducation‬ facing new challenges integrating old/new techniques and toys & ‪#‎tech‬ in treatment.
That's why I created my Socially Speaking™ Seminars, ‪#‎iPad‬ ‪#‎App‬ in iTunes, and wrote my book, "Autism Intervention in the iEra" in a unique way!!
In it, I list goals, materials (specific toys and suggested iPad Apps), recommended links and books, and more!
What if reading a book about Autism intervention changed.....everything?
Stay tuned!

  4. 4. “Children will not continue treatment if they are bored and cannot easily express themselves, or if the educator does not succeed in stimulating their motivation, curiosity, and participation.” -Dr. Jean Piaget NOTE © 2015 Penina Pearl Rybak, Socially Speaking LLC, All Rights Reserved www.SociallySpeakingLLC.com
  5. 5. ★ The environment is NOT our friend! 1. We need to sanitize the learning environment by: a) Choosing behavioral reinforcers wisely b) Removing distractions c) Prepping the child to accept being there: Establishing Rapport and Sensory Diet 2. We need to decipher the “rules” of said environment: a) Visual Supports (visual schedules, Social Stories, rule reminder charts etc.) b) Communication Aids (Apps) c) Development of Humor Clinical Considerations I © 2015 Penina Pearl Rybak, Socially Speaking LLC, All Rights Reserved www.SociallySpeakingLLC.com
  6. 6. ★ Technology IS our friend! 1. We need to start off using tech & apps as reinforcers: 2. We need to assess child’s learning style & play level, to pair toys & tech 3. We need to use technology to teach Causality and Categorization, to help child make sense of the things/people in the environment a) Technology naturally teaches If....Then Contingent & sequencing (beginning/middle/end to all tasks) b) Technology fosters “whole body learning” through teachable moments involving groups of pictures, vocabulary, tasks, and apps Clinical Considerations II © 2015 Penina Pearl Rybak, Socially Speaking LLC, All Rights Reserved www.SociallySpeakingLLC.com
  7. 7. • Sensory Processing Dysfunction CAN Affect Self Regulation Skills! • 1. Orientation to Person/Place/Time • 2. Readiness to Learn Eye Contact, Social Smiles, and Affect • 3. Ability to Wait/Take Turns, Maintain TOT & Topic, & Transition • 4. Achieving Body Awareness, Self Control, & Respecting Boundaries • 5. Mastering Age Appropriate Executive Functioning Skills & Judgement • * All this has a cascade effect on readiness to use tech with both hands, let alone independently and in sequence! One antidote is using visual cues! Implications for Development of Social Communication Skills © 2015 Penina Pearl Rybak, Socially Speaking LLC, All Rights Reserved www.SociallySpeakingLLC.com

  13. 13. The Importance of Play: • Play fosters Self Concept, emotional engagement with others, and the ability to self regulate. It facilitates the child’s understanding of the environment (i.e. the structure and routine, rules, and expectations of said environment). It provides social referencing through empathy.

  15. 15. Like any tool or toy, an understanding of developmental milestones and language development helps the special education service provider know which app to use when. Understanding the child’s inner landscape and potential “triggers” are needed to set the stage for maximum impact. What is also needed before introducing an iPad® into lesson plans is: ✦ A universal way to assess which iOS App is actually worth buying ✦A developmental hierarchy to consider, when introducing specific iOS apps into treatment at specific junctures in time NOTE 2015 Penina Pearl Rybak, Socially Speaking LLC, All Rights Reserved www.SociallySpeakingLLC.com
