iPad Apps for Blind Children

Have you heard all the hullabaloo about the iPad and its amazing apps for special needs children? Even the television news program 60 Minutes recently aired a piece on how apps are being used to help children with autism communicate.

So what about your child? Are there apps out there that might help your child communicate, develop finger dexterity, learn about cause and effect or maybe just have fun? Can we really use iPad apps to facilitate learning in children with low vision and other visual impairments? Can blind kids really play with apps?

The answer is a resounding YES!

There are hundreds of thousands of apps available for the iPad and iPhone, so finding the ones that work well for your child is no easy task. And that's where we come in! With the help of our dedicated iPad app reviewers, Eric Jerman and Mary McDonach, we'll sort through all the apps out there and bring you the ones that makes sense for your family.
