In my latest book, ‘Touch Skills Progression’, I explore the skills students with severe and complex difficulties need to be able to operate touch devices including touch screens, interactive whiteboards and tablet devices such as the ipad.
Drawing together best practice from over ten years of classroom teaching and lesson observations this new booklet will help you assess, teach and record progress in the skills required to use touch enabled technology. From cause and effect to confident choosing, early dabbling to drag and drop, each stage is fully explained and illustrated with teaching activities you can try in your classroom. Linked to the QCA P Levels for ICT with examples using software and apps you’ll already have this booklet is a ‘must have’ for all colleagues working with students who have severe and complex needs including Autism.
Touch Skills Progression will be available as a PDF download from my website late January 2012.
