Is your child getting stuck on electronics?
Electronics, especially tablets and iPads, are becoming increasingly popular and the number of apps developed for children is increasing every day! Although these devices can be powerful tools for motivation, reinforcement and learning, problems can arise when a child becomes seemingly "obsessed" with the device (e.g., unable to tolerate it being removed and having outbursts or tantrums when it is controlled in any way). Below are some suggestions for dealing with these issues. If your child is not having issues such as these, or has not had access to electronics yet, instituting some of these suggestions may prevent them from occurring.
For those interested, Autism Speaks' website has a helpful list of apps recommended for individuals with autism. Their list specifies the category, device/platform, age and supporting research for each app!
