Alexandra got a iPad some months ago. It was offered by our running team for Autism by " Laughing Dog Brewing" in Sandpoint ID. We didn't know that the iPad will be interactive enough to interest Alexandra, teaching her for the first time, causes & effects. If you can, get a iPad for your daughter...
We first started with Fish Pond , who even with gloves( if they humid enough ) allowed her to scared the fish away, hear the water ripples watch the scenes with interest and surprise as the fish come back!
Than we added stories and music games.
I am going to give you a list of the apps she likes. I just introduced a ABC teaching app that she can not use by herself, but she likes to watch it and have me talk about it. We write her name, play flash cards and what is important overall is her attention to the activity. Alexandra is severely impaired with the Rett syndrome, her hands are constantly in her mouth and she has strong breathing episode. But the good new is that she can activate a iPad enough that she is active with something!
List of the Apps we like! Alexandra is 13 years old, but really even my oldest 16 years old and her friends enjoy any type of game on the iPad.....and myself too.
