Bob previously told my collaborative inquiry group his story of using an iPad to help a visually impaired student.
While he has been busy using the iPad to accommodate special needs students, I have been finding resource after resource that points to the fact that he is not alone. Many people are finding the iPad to be a breakthrough technology in the special education world. Here are some resources you might spend some time checking out:
- iPad opens world to disabled boy @ NY Times
- Ten apple iPad apps to help children with Autism
- How the iPad can help kids with Autism @ Parenting Magazine
- iPhone/iPad apps for AAC (Augmented and Alternative Communication)
There are many more articles and sites out there. If you’ve found any other resources like this, go ahead and leave a comment on this post. Have any of you used your iPad to help accommodate for special situations in your classroom?
