'Face blindness' may involve a failed brain network, and could shed light on autism

Newswise: Teens with Autism Can Master Daily Living Skills When Parents Teach, Reach for iPads

Teens with Autism Can Master Daily Living Skills When Parents Teach, Reach for iPads

Florida Atlantic University

Daily tasks can be difficult for some people with autism because they often involve sequential steps. Since people with autism are strong visual learners, a study examined if parents could help their teens learn using portable, mainstream devices like an iPad. Similar studies have primarily targeted parents of young children with autism. Results show that video prompting interventions produced both immediate and lasting effects for teens with autism and that parents can be powerful delivery agents to increase independence in their children.
