android and autism

i just wondered if anyone knew anything about androids and if they were good for autism or had good autism programs? i saw they had some but wondered if anyone had tried them. an android tab is out of my budget but they are cheaper than ipads. it seems like ipads have a little more communication/autism programs. i found a bunch of articles saying how good ipads were but not much about androids. my dd is autistic non verbal and i was going to try and get her one possibly but only if the programs were worth it or comparable.

I really don't have an answer for you. But I would recommend researching the types of programs you'd like for her. Make sure you note system requirements. Then find one that matches her needs. There's a great company that I use for computer parts etc, they have tablets that are Android that run for under $200. some of them are refurbished, but i bought refurbished from them a few yrs ago, got my computer at half price, and it's still working great.

I'm honestly not sure. My son is on the spectrum but is verbal so we never looked into anything like that. Have you asked in any of the autism support groups?

 What about letting her use the computer? My son is autistic and loves going on!

she's also mentally handicapped and can't work the mouse. Ideally i want something she can carry around with her. i think i will probably try and get her an ipad maybe save up for it or something. i think android could get there eventually but for now i think apple has the lead on what i would want it for.
