COMPUTER SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE
Accelerations Educational Software
Activity Trainer (AT) is a software package that teaches skills covering academics, daily living, communication, recreation, social, and vocational. Research shows that many individuals with autism are visual learners and learn much more quickly with video modeling over live modeling.  The AT makes this powerful teaching method practical for school and home.  There are free trials and the package is reasonably priced.

Discrete Trial (DT) Trainer was created to teach individuals with autism by using ABA methods on the computer.  The package allows even very low functioning learners to usually become independent learners on at least some of what we need them to know.  The DT Trainer covers concepts in receptive  language, early academics, and life skills and is for learners developmentally from 2 to 9 years old.  There are free trials and the package is reasonably priced.
