I have a rather unique need when it comes to an iPad case. My oldest son is low-functioning autistic, and we purchased an iPad 3 with the Proloquo2go software to serve as a communication device for him - it's cheaper and more portable than dedicated communications devices (which cost around $7,000).
He loves his iPad, but he tends to destroy things when bored or angry. So far, he has destroyed one iPad in an Otterbox Defender (torn aport with bare hands and smashed on tile) and one in a Griffin Survivor case (silicon cut with scissors and screen smashed with hammer). It only takes a few minutes inattention and we're out another iPad. We try to keep it locked up when we can't supervise him directly, but we're human and we slip up occasionally. He needs this device for school and to communicate needs - we can't just take it away from him permanently.
I am aware that there is no such thing as a case that can protect from someone maliciously determined to destroy, but are there any cases that are even more durable than those two? Or at the least, more difficult to remove? Even getting a few more minutes of protection could mean the difference between just buying another case and buying a whole new iPad.
Thanks if anyone has any suggestions.
