iShare is an adapted electronic communication system that allows students with cognitive impairments to email and post to blogs. Students learn to use a motivating mainstream technology to work on social communication and writing skills. The iShare program includes an interface for clinicians or teachers to send email assignments, post class blogs and evaluate and graph performance on spelling, grammar, content or other domains they are targeting.
iShare is safe because it is a closed system only available to chosen partners. It is adaptable for different class and clinic settings. It can be loaded on classroom or clinic computers or each student can have his or her own iShare program on a USB drive so it is available on any computer, including the studentís home computer.
iShare staff set up individualized student and teacher accounts and provide ongoing tech support..
