The use if IPADS in special education classrooms

I am currently doing research on this topic and I am having difficulties find current literature on this. I feel it is a valuable topic and one that needs to be looked into. My work received a grant and therefore I now have an IPAD in my classroom for my students, many of whom who are on the spectrum. It is helping them so much, they are beginning to use language and they are now able to demonstrate to us their academic abilities that unfortunately we may have never had the opportunity to see.

Here is a link to a really good article regarding IPads in the special education classroom.  It has in depth information as well as additional links to resources, articles, videos, etc.  I hope you find it useful!

CEC actually has some information in their most current edition of Teaching Exceptional Children. Here is the link to it www.cec.sped.org/TEC/plus. I hope this helps a little!

When technology can narrow the communication gap of students with exceptionalities, then the learning world is open to so many learning possibilities.
