Brenda Kosky Deskin, Founder and Editor of AutismBeacon.com, explains how to get and use "Guided Access", a feature included in Apple's iOS 6, the new operating system for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. This tutorial is specifically geared toward teachers, therapists, parents and caregivers who work with individuals on the Autism Spectrum who use one of these Apple devices.

Brenda will show you how to upgrade your device to iOS 6 and then how to activate Guided Access. She will then illustrate how to:

  • prevent a user from leaving an app
  • turn off the touch sensitivity of your device's entire screen
  • turn off the touch sensitivity of only a part of your device's screen
  • prevent your device's screen from automatically reorienting itself when it is tilted in different directions
