    Apps and AT for OTs and SLPs!

    For many individuals, time on the iPad is a solitary activity. However, the iPad can be used to engage small groups of children in educational and therapeutic activities, as well as provide opportunities to work toward therapeutic goals. This workshop will demonstrate apps used by OTs and SLPs that allow them to use their iPad for group activities in the classroom and in the therapy room!  Additional AT options will also be discussed.
