Promoting the Social Inclusion of Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder Via Mobile Technologies

I have been studying how mobile technologies like iPads can promote social inclusion of students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) by meeting their communication, social, language, and educational needs. In this study, I am focusing on understanding the experiences of children, educators, parents/legal guardians, and other school-based staff members (such as administrators, etc.) when students with ASD are using mobile technologies for social inclusion, and how these experiences support the social inclusion of students with ASD.
