Autism Language Program
Most children with autism currently use the computer only for entertainment. In the ALP, our clinicians will observe your child using the computer to determine:
- how your child interacts with the computer
- if they imitate
- if they follow directions
- if they react to graphics and sound
- if they respond to instruction while self-engaged in a software program
Our clinicians are then able to make recommendations that put better controls and focus on computer use. It is our aim to maximize the power of the computer for persons on the autism spectrum so that it truly becomes a learning tool instead of just another form of self-stimulation. Specific software recommendations are often made which can assist in this process.
