A network to share best practices for children with special needs
It's amazing how one piece of technology can do so much. The iPad®, designed to be an advanced mobile operating system, has become incredibly valuable to children and adults with special needs. It used to be difficult for children and adults with hearing loss to communicate, but with the iPad, it has opened up a whole new world using "face time." The sister product, called the iPhone®, shows the ability to use face time to communicate through sign language in one of their commercials.
The iPad can be used with children who are verbal and non-verbal. Depending on the apps (applications), a child can enhance their expressive communication, social skills, overall language and more. The following video highlights one mom's excitement over the amazing iPad and the different apps she uses to help her son with autism.
