iPads and Disabilities

iPads have become a powerful tool for students with disabilities to access educational opportunities. iPads are being featured more and more on the news, and parents are excited by simple, easy-to-use devices and educational apps. iPads are not the “solution” for all disabilities but can be a valuable resource for reaching our kids with motor, speech, communication and social skills difficulties.

Information for iPads changes on a daily basis, and prices for apps vary by the hour.

PLEASE NOTE: These apps and products are not endorsed by my employer, this website is an independent resource.  This is simply a list of apps that have been tried by therapists and teachers who have rated them highly.
