It’s time for big news and big fun! That’s right, it’s time to give away a free iPad to one lucky WonderBaby family!!!
We’ve been playing with our iPad for a few months now and Ivan just loves it. He is learning so much and it is amazing what he can do on this little device. And I want to share this experience with another family!
Think your child can’t use an iPad because of his or her visual impairment or other disabilities? You might be surprised at how accessible the iPad really is! Check out this article on iPad accessibility to learn more.
Plus we’re not just giving away an iPad. We’re giving away the perfect iPad package for a special needs child!
Here’s what you could win:
- The NEW iPad from Apple! This is the newest version of the iPad that was just released last month and it is being donated by Perkins School for the Blind!
- A virtually indestructible GumDrop iPad Case. A good case is a must-have if you’re handing an iPad over to a child. You can read our review of the GumDrop Case here.
- The RadSounds switch-ready music app donated by RJ Cooper plus an RJ Cooper switch interface. This app turns your playlist into a musical game. You can play in Momentary Mode, where the music plays for only the time you hold your finger on the iPad, or Timed Mode, where the music plays for a specified number of seconds and then your child has to tap the screen to get it to continue. This app works great with a switch! Read more about RadSounds here.
- A Blue2 Bluetooth Switch for use with switch-activated apps donated by AbleNet. This switch is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and also ships with a USB Bluetooth dongle so you can use it with your computer too!
- Two more switch-ready apps donated by Inclusive Technology: Smarty Pants and Five Sharks Swimming. Smarty Pants is an app about emotions and Five Sharks is a counting app that starts simply but has more advanced settings for older kids. Both are accessible for children with visual impairments and both are switch-friendly. You can read our reviews of these apps here.
