My niece is a teacher who deals with special needs children. Two months ago, it was mentioned that their daughter who is 11, was wanting an iPad for her birthday. I was asked for advice and gave them some options. I was talking to her last night to see which one she got, and how the child was doing with it. She said the had not bought one, because the school she teaches at, gave her two iPad 2s; 16Gb-wifi models. Since she only needs one, her daughter is able to use it for a short period while they see how it worked out. my niece loves it for work, because she uses the camera to video a child when they act out, and then shows them what they look like. It has been instrumental in her job, plus she has something to show superiors and parents about what is going on.
They now know for certain that my grandniece is getting an iPad, with at least 32 Gb SSD
