Many schools in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area are seeing success with the usage of iPads for students with learning difficulties and autism. According to a recent article in the Washington Post, these schools, some public and some private, have seen an increase in communication and a reduction in the amount of time students spend being frustrated in the classroom. In addition, the usage of the tablet’s touch screen can prove to be much easier to use for a student with fine motor difficulties than traditional pen and paper or a computer mouse. The elementary curriculum coordinator at Lab School in Washington DC, Jennifer Durham, thinks that the ease of operation, flexibility in use, and “hip” technology add to the iPad’s appeal and motivation for students.
