A tablet computer can help give children a voice. Images on a computer screen draw closer attention than pictures on paper. For older kids, a sleek tablet doesn’t carry the stigma of bulky, conspicuous special education equipment. Most importantly, a touch screen eliminates the difficulty that a child with disabilities might have with manipulating a keyboard or understanding the connection between a mouse and cursor. “All you need is a finger on the screen. There’s no disconnect. Children can learn to recognize words and read them, children learn to spell by tracing letters with their fingertip. A student can use pictures to help understand tasks and schedules — such as getting dressed before eating breakfast, and then boarding the bus for school, and classroom routines. Scores of new apps are available to help children with disabilities that interfere with their ability to speak, learn or socialize. Studies show that ease of use, visual impact and intuitive nature of a touch screen, combined with the portability and “cool factor” of a tablet computer, have led to near-miraculous breakthroughs for children with a variety of disabilities.
