MetadataShow full item record
This paper presentation focuses on an exploratory study conducted with preschool children ages 3 to 5 with disabilities ranging from mild to severe, and the use of the iPad for learning. Preschool children and their families were provided with an iPad and early learning apps to try in the home for a period of 6 weeks. The children’s use of the iPad was evaluated before and after the trial period. The parents documented the use of the iPad and provided the researcher with extensive feedback. The outcomes were very positive. Come to the session and hear about the results. The learning that the children displayed was very surprising. The practical implications of this study for implementing this tool with preschool children with disabilities will be explored and information that can be provided to parents to support the use of this tool will be shared.
