This blog is designed to document infants/toddlers with disabilities using an iPad to promote their development. I hope to show how this new technology can help children with disabilities develop their communication, play, pre-literacy, cognitive, visual/auditory and motor skills.
Look Baby is a free app at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/look-baby/id325952583?mt=8 I like to use it for basic cause/effect, to encourage reaching, and to maintain visual attention/fixation. It has simple pictures and pleasant music/sounds effects. When working with vision I often turn the volume down or off to minimze distraction. The child does need to touch the item on the screen not anywhere on the screen which makes it a little more challenging.
