  • Weekly study

    3 hours

La majoria dels xiquets i xiquetes diagnosticats amb Trastorn de l’Espectre Autista (TEA) presenten també algun tipus de Discapacitat Intel·lectual (DI) - o Dificultat d’Aprenentatge. Tanmateix, aquest grup està molt poc representat dins la investigació i coneixement dins dels TEA. Amb aquest curs ampliarem especialment el coneixement del TEA junt a DI. Profunditzarem en l’ús de les tecnologies, endinsant-nos en l’app SMART-ASD la qual identifica les habilitats i necessitats dels nens amb TEA i DI per tal de trobar les tecnologies més adequades per a donar-li suport.
