iPads for Autism Workshop to Benefit Reach for the Stars Learning Center The Soho Gallery for Digital Art New York, NY

Autism and iPad advocate Shannon Des Roches Rosa leads this in-depth workshop on the role of iPads for people with autism. Ms. Rosa will demonstrate how iPads can be a dynamic and cost-effective learning tool for autistic children and adults, and will discuss the additional benefits of the iPad as well as fundraising, research, accessories, and – of course – apps.

So if you’re considering an iPad for your loved one with autism, already have an iPad but aren’t sure how best to use it, or just want to talk about all things iPads & autism, this is the workshop for you!

Workshop proceeds benefit Brooklyn’s Reach for the Stars Learning Center, “dedicated to the education of children with autistic spectrum disorders utilizing every possible tool to further their development.”
