Using Technology with Children with Special Needs

Technology is a controversial and growing topic in education, especially with early education. While technology has many benefits, we need to limit and supervise it's use appropriately.

Technology includes TV, phones, tablets, etc. How often does your child watch TV during the day?


Appropriate use of these devices would include an interactive approach. You, as the parent, can make any screen time into an educational experience. While watching your child's favorite cartoon, sit down with them and ask questions about what you are watching. For example, ask "What color is the dog?" or "How many clouds are there." You can do the same thing with your phone or tablets; make screen time fun and educational while limiting it's use rather than using technology as a babysitter.

 What is your opinion of the use of technology with children? With children with Special Needs?

Come share your ideas at our "Using Technology with Children with Special Needs" workshop. Learn from therapists about techniques and programs to work with your child. We will demonstrate some great apps as well as the features that you want to look for in apps.

Come ready to share ideas with other parents!

Childcare and dinner will be provided.

Tuesday, September 24th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.

 Please RSVP to or 704.638.9020.
