    I like the idea of using the tablet for teaching special needs children. We tend to think of tablets as a toy; but your post shows that they can be so much more. Autistic children, blind children, learning disabled children, etc, can all learn and benefit. I think music is a great help too; and it could be played on these devices. It’s great to see that there are many apps now that are targeted toward teaching learning disabled children. Everyone can learn. Some just need other methods than the norm.

    Thanks for a good review of tablets for kids.

      Thank You Jeannie,

      Happy you found my article interesting, many parents do not realize the potential tablets can do for their child’s learning and education. Tablets were not invented for education, but many schools are using them to reach now with positive results.

    This was truly an amazing read! I have an autistic son that has some issues with connecting things mentally and socially. I never thought about the tablet being used as a learning tool to help with learing disabilities. I was one of those parents that looked at video games and the wonderful world-wide web in a negative light. Your article really shed some light on my close minded opinion when it comes to tablets, apps and some of the games that might be able to help my son in areas i could not. Thanks for the share!

      Thank You Cleshe Rice,

      I thank you for sharing with my readers your opinion and thoughts today, many of us think of the internet as a bad influence on our children. I have come to the conclusion it is all on how we use the internet which makes it a positive or negative experience for our children, parents must supervise their child when on the internet to be sure they are being influenced in a positive way.

    Both the adolescents in my family have tablets of their own, and I definitely agree that kids LOVE using them. There are a lot of ways to use tablets as teaching tools for kids, but there are also a lot of ways a kid can get distracted using their tablet. Do you have any advice for limiting a child’s screen-time? What’s a good daily scedual?

    • admin says:

      Thank You Anna,

      You should be supervising the child while they are using the tablet for educational purposes, it is recommend a child should spend no more than two hours on a tablet at one time. Children need breaks from technology, when they don’t often this can be a trigger for anxiety.
