The Why, When, What, and How of Improving Educational Therapy Outcomes Through Technology

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Educational therapists are faced with a world of students who appear to have become “screen zombies,” practically addicted to their electronic devices. Neurologically, when a child is successfully engaged with these activities, a pleasure response in their brain lights up, increasing the child’s motivation and attention to similar activities. Whether you work in a school or private practice, ETs can leverage technology to support student success. This session will discuss the ways in which the integration of technological tools in treatment sessions can produce breakthroughs in literacy, academic achievement, executive functioning, motivation, and emotional well-being for those we serve.

Participants will be able to: explain how a client’s motivation, attention, organization, and academic, and social/emotional skills are enhanced by integrating technology tools into ET sessions; utilize a framework for the development of personalized strategies that integrate technology into regular sessions; identify appropriate technological tools and apply them with students who demonstrate learning, developmental, social/emotional, behavioral, and/or cognitive difficulties.
