Effects of Functional Training Using Ipad Application

Author: U.GANAPATHY SANKAR, MONISHA.R
Abstract: There is a lag in acquisition and execution of coordinated motor skills. In fact it has been documented that 40% of children with autism exhibits difficulty in communication especially delay in acquiring functional spoken language. Children with autism exhibit behavioral abnormalities like aggression, depression, self-injury and destruction of objects around them. These are quoted as reason for poor communication pattern among these children. Researchers have demonstrated that poor level of communication skills were related to challenging behavior and 80% of children with autism have behavioral problems which is challenging for the parents, caregivers as well as therapist engaged in the rehabilitation of children with autism. 10% of children use challenging behavior as a means of communication while performing activities in daily living The research analyzed effects of a functional communication training, which includes reinforcements and prompting the behavior in children with Autism of aged 5 to 6 years. The current study aims to highlight the relation between functional communication training using IPAD and decreased levels of challenging behavioral problems. Five children with Autism recruited from therapy centers for kids in Kattupakkam is included in the study and one child shows zero level in behavioral problems and four children showed decrease of challenging behaviors after intervention. But further research is needed to validate the IPAD application among autistic children with large sample size.
