Abstract: The Purpose of the Study was to analyze the effectiveness of iPad Mediated Instruction newlineStrategy (iPMIS) to enhance reading skills in children with autism and also with mild newlineintellectual disability. True Experimental design with Control and Experimental was the research newlinedesign of the study. The sample consisted of 30 +25 in the Experimental and Control group in the newlineage 8-12 years. A standardized tool Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS)was used for newlinediagnosis, Background information data format was used collection of details of the sample. newlineFunctional Academic Assessment Tool developed by the investigator was used for obtaining the newlinecurrent level of functioning in academic skill. The Pre-test for gaining the entry level of the newlinesample in reading skill was assessed using Basic Reading Comprehension Assessment Tool newlinedeveloped by the investigator. Android Software PALM was developed for 50 sight words and newline75 two word phrases. The approach used teaching of the words through Whole word approach. newlineThis was embedded into Samsung Galaxy Geo 3 Tab and used as iPad Mediated newlineInstruction Strategy (iPMIS) to enhance reading skills among the Children with Autism in newlineExperimental Group. The conventional method was used for those in the Control group. The newlineduration of the study was for six months . Each session for each child / per day was for 45 newlineminutes. Performance Monitoring was done weekly and monthly. At end of sixth month Post test newlineanalysis was done. A delayed Post Test was conducted at the end of the 7th month. newlineTo analyze the efficacy of iPad Mediated Instruction Strategy (iPMIS) to enhance reading newlineskills in children with autism the statistical measures such as ANCOVA, ANOVA, Paired newlineComparison of Least Significant Difference Test (LSD), Pearson s Moment Correlation , t-test, newlineand one way ANOVA was used. The analysis pinpointed that iPMIS was effective in enhancing newlinereading skills in children with autism. The Parsons Moment correlation highlighted a strong newlinerelation between the components of reading such reading, comprehensio
