I am so fascinated by all of the recent research showing how beneficial iPads can be for autistic chidren! I work in a school district where there are 90+ students on the spectrum. We do not have any iPads, but they have access to AlphaSmarts and laptops. However, these tools can not do what the iPad apparently can! According to data, autistic children can learn to ask questions, coverse and even make eye contact through some fo the iPad apps available! Check out this video and please share any thoughts. I am in the process of writing a Grant to try and obtain a few for my school district!
