Elias, Maurice J.; Friedlander, Brian S.; Tobias, Steven E.
This book shows how to use readily accessible computer technology to engage hard-to-reach children, including those with attention deficit disorder, autism, aspergers, and developmental delays. The authors demonstrate that the computer's ability to combine motion, sound, color, text, and physical activity makes it a cutting-edge approach. The chapters are as follows: (1) Working with the Alphabet: ADHD, LD, MR, ODD, PDD (i.e., Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Learning Disabilities, Mental Retardation, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Pervasive Developmental Disorder); (2) Emotional Expression through Drawing/Painting; (3) Exploring Significant Emotional Events through Multimedia Storytelling; (4) Self-Exploration through Multimedia Autobiography; (5) Promoting Self-Esteem through Personal Print Ads or Commercials; (6) Building Individual and Group Social Skills through Short Movies; (7) Personal Reflections on the Self; (8) Building Emotional Intelligence and Social Problem Solving Skills; (9) Using the Personal Problem Solving Guide; and (10) Ways To Access the Computers for Students with Special Needs.
