What the Expert Says:

I have seen some great improvements with autistic children and the iPad.  The apps are user friendly.  There are quite a few apps that are specifically designed for autistic children.  The apps range from augmentative programs to enhance speech to pragmatic language helping students answering wh questions.  As a teacher of some autistic students I have found the tool to be extremely benenficial.
