I am a Special Education teacher for Intellectually Disabled 14-21 year olds. I have found the iPad a great tool for so many of my students. It is visual, auditory and kinesthetic. It allows for differentiated instruction as well as increasing social skills. In addition I am teaching teachers and parents why the iPad can create another tool to help children be successful.
