Joe loves a good screen. Phones, TVs, computers – if it lights up he wants to touch it. We got him an iPad a long time ago thinking it would help him learn, but at the time it was just a big distraction. He’d get over excited, swipe and slap at it, and would tune us out completely. It was counter-productive.
Since then he’s used one in preschool, at therapy and (as much as possible) in an organized way at home. Plus he’s matured a lot (he is, after all, about to be a kindergartner). And now it’s starting to click.
Screens like this have incredible potential for anyone, and we’re looking forward to watching Joe continue to learn with his.
