The IPAD is not the solution to all your problems
Personally, I get tired of people telling me to get my son an IPAD. First off, we can't afford it. Secondly, even if we could, I probably wouldn't get one. In my local autism support group, several of the parents got their kids IPADs and other tablets, and the result--- the kids seem to be even less likely to interact than they were before. They just sit in the corner and play games or whatever. Don't see how this really helps.
