Last week, educators from around the world attended the 2011 International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference in Philadelphia. Conference organizers say more 17,000 people were in attendance to see, touch, and learn about products and services from more than five hundred of the top education technology companies in the world. Many of the attendees visited the Skills™ exhibit area to learn about the web-based product to effectively design and manage a comprehensive, individualized treatment program for children with autism and related disorders.
“I stood in line for about 10 minutes after hearing a Skills presentation,” says Sharon Goodman of Florida. “Skills seems like the perfect tool to use with my students who display challenging behaviors.”
Sharon was one of over 200 educators who signed up to use Skills for free until the end of 2011.
“I think this initiative is great, “ adds Sharon. “It allows teachers to try the program and see just how effective it is. I love the fact that there is no obligation.”
