Local center uses iPads to help special-needs children communicate

From the Times-News:

FLAT ROCK — As Emily Hodges touched a picture on the iPad 2 Wednesday at Helping Hands Developmental Center, an electronic voice said, “Spider.”

The center uses iPads with special needs students who don’t speak, are autistic or need to work on motor skills. Evans said it’s one of the more popular devices to use with special populations for learning and communication because it gives immediate results and is easy to use.
