Coming in 2020: New Assistive Technology for Classrooms

Medina County Courthouse

Thanks to a generous grant of $25,000 from the Ingram-White Castle Foundation, Boundless Worthington and Newark are receiving a high-tech upgrade! Five classrooms will receive interactive projectors, new iPads with protective cases, and other program support resources.

Our BCBAs will use the new interactive projectors for group lessons, calendar and time review, videos in motion, and autism fitness demonstrations. At the same time, iPads will offer students access to apps that provide visual cues to aid in communication, support transitions to reduce anxiety, and create consist structure in daily schedules.

Research has shown that students with autism who use interactive technology such as iPads and interactive projectors can undergo a breakthrough in speech development and communication skills. While it can be difficult for students with autism to follow verbal instructions, assistive technology provides an engaging way for them to build on their strengths through images that build pattern recognition.

The installation of these new resources is scheduled for later this month.
