Max's Dad

Hi everyone i'm Tom. Max is 17, is autistic and has fragile x syndrome. At the moment I am struggling to help the school find a way for Max to use his p2g in a classroom situation. He is in a special unit in a mainstream school here in the UK. Although he can speak his pronunciation is very poor and he really finds it hard to initiate a conversation and to maintain it. He is pretty good with p2g as we have been practicing for some time. He can edit most aspects of his entries, He is quite good at spelling and we have been typing for some time. The problem is finding a teaching/leaning strategy which will allow interaction in the class. I'm looking for examples of successful projects where p2g has been used in a learining environment.
Thanks for any help. Tom

I find it's pretty easy to

I find it's pretty easy to use p2g and it has been a good experience for Max so far. But.... the real point of it all is to help him communicate with others using this tool. It's still a problem to figure this out. Any teachers out there who have examples of how to integrate this technology with a classroom....?
