Abstract

In this document we provide a preliminary overview of how IPads and software applications are being used by K-12 special education teachers, speech pathologists, and school psychologists to aid with teaching, learning, and development of special needs students. Included in this discussion is a specific look at how IPads are used to assist students with speech impediments, autism, reading skills, and math development. Future research work will be conducted.
