Autism Intervention at a Click of the Mouse
A web version of early autism intervention program iLearnNEarn is up and running now for IE users who do not have, or do not want to use, the iPad, iPhone or Android phones.
The web-friendly edition of the ABA-based special needs education program is compatible with Internet Explorer 8 and above. In addition to retaining almost all usability features of iLNE for iPad and Android, iLearnNEarn for the web lets a user assign activities with just a few clicks. Registration is required for parents and teachers to start assigning activities such as Color Find, Digital Time, My Words, Spell Me, Multiply Me, 123 Order, Number Find, Sound Match, Show Me, Alphabets, Map Me, Drag N Spell, Shapes, Face Read, and Single Digit.
Once an account is created, the user needs to log in and click ‘iCare’ to go to the activities list where he or she will find a library of activities to select. Depending on the individualized education plan (IEP) of the concerned child, the parent or the teacher can assign a set of new activities or un-assign a set of old activities, so the student can get the most relevant lessons at any given time.
On assigning the activities, the user needs to click ‘Submit’ to save the assignment and go back to the previous screen where there should be a ‘Play’ button along with the ‘iCare’ button. Clicking ‘Play’ will let the user play one activity at a time until he or she finishes playing all the assigned activities. One of the main features of iLNE is that it stores data from each play session for progress tracking. So effectively on finishing a play session, a user can go to the ‘Progress’
Just in case a user faces difficulties in logging in, he or she may want to check the Internet settings configuration. At the bottom of the login page there will be a ‘Settings’
“There are many parents and teachers who cannot afford the iPad or Android devices to run iLearnNEarn. The web version will be of help to them in particular. Special needs teachers often face budgetary constraints when dealing with a large number of students with unique needs. The diverse activities inbuilt in iLearnNEarn can help improve specific skill areas of young learners on the autism spectrum,” said Tim Sharp, Program Coordinator at WebTeam Corporation.
