Using his knowledge of speech and language, she works as an AT consultant who works at Sylvan Therapy Center. Having worked previously for over 15 years in school setting, he has important knowledge on the needs of the special students. He is currently consulting for the center with the aim of assisting the special education teachers in acquiring the necessary skills to handle special students. His area of specialization is assisting teams with communication needs, particularly those handling autistic students. The consultant argues that autistic children require specialized learning instructions. According to James, communication difficulties make it problematic for the kids in their interactions and expressions. At the moment, he is handling 12 autistic children who have been undergoing intensive training in speech and language. He works with a team of three teachers who handle the kids.Assistive technology offers hope to students with difficulties in attaining know
