Using the iPhone for Assistive Technology: A Case Study
Ford, Chelsea; Rabe, Karl
Exceptional Parent, v41 n7 p20-22 Jul 2011
Parent and teacher collaborated to use the Apple iPhone as assistive technology to meet the needs of Bill, a 20-year-old student in the Saline Young Adult program, part of the Saline Michigan School System. Bill has an intellectual disability and this technology provided an effective, flexible and moderate cost solution that helped him meet his Individual Education Program job site time management goals. It also enriched Bill's connection to family and friends and empowered him with increased self-determination. This paper provides an overview of how the authors used the iPhone as well as the results and lessons learned. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
