I have heard that there are new apps for working with kids on the autism spectrum! My 12 year old DS has Aspergers and this would be an AMAZING tool for him! He has Hypotonia, a condition where writing is laborious, and becomes painful during note taking and writing assignments for school.
His writing has become an issue so much that it interferes with his grades! The opportunity to use a tablet to assist in his education would be such an incredible help to him! He would still be using his hands actively, yet in a much more fun way - that would encourage him to complete long assignments.
He does very well with computers, and has an interest in computer science as well. While we cannot afford a tablet, the opportunity for him to use one for educational use would be a dream come true!!!
OH, CAFE MOM.... YOU HAVE US MOM'S DREAMING AND DROOLING!!!
