Use of iPad and Mobile Devices in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: A Systematic Review

Anna Ebert and Sabiha Parveen

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability often associated with challenges in behavior and communication. Approximately 1 in 42 children have ASD and its prevalence is expected to remain constant based on current trends. Children with ASD can have a range of communication skills including being completely nonverbal to having a large vocabulary and being able to converse about certain topics in rich detail. Children with ASD have been reported to learn more effectively from computerized assistance compared to traditional methods. With 95% of people in the United States owning some form of mobile device, this modality of intervention can be easily accessed by most individuals. Although prior researchers have examined the possible benefits of iPad-based intervention among individuals with ASD, the overall evidence for these types of interventions is currently lacking.
