iPad: Technology and Developmental Disabilities
Although the iPad was never initially meant to be a tool for people with developmental disabilities, many people have discovered the benefits of the iPad for people with developmental disabilities. Additionally, new apps have been developed to help people with developmental disabilities who use the iPad. For example, there’s Leo, who we have tweeted about before on @DDA604. Leo used various apps to help learn and communicate (video below).
Caleigh, who has cerebral palsy, also uses the iPad to communicate.
Have any other parents found success using the iPad to teach or communicate with their children? With or without developmental disabilities?
