Let’s Talk! How techy is your child?

July 31, 2012 by cpehrson

The Let’s Talk! blog gives our readers a chance to let us know how they feel about the issues and concerns that affect the lives of people with disabilities and their families and to hear what others think.

New technology is being developed every day.  It is a part of almost every child’s life; from cell phones, to electronic toys and games.  Technology has even found its way into the classroom, helping teachers engage students who may learn best in other ways.

A growing number of families with children who have special needs are purchasing iPad tablet computers for their children.  There are many applications that are available that can be used to help children to communicate more easily and to build new skills.

In this Let’s Talk! blog, we would like to hear from our readers about:

What technology is your child using? 

How has it helped your child?

What apps would you recommend to other parents to try with their child?

Please share with us your experiences using technology with your child in the comment section below.
