I am a carer for a young girl (9) who is ASD Vi (no useful vision) and has SLD.
After many months of battling VI services in the area for an iPad for her, with no results, I applied to a charity and got one!! An iPad 2, with external QWERTY keyboard (as I have taught her to touch type) and a griffin military case!! Very pleased to say the least!
My main reason for posting here is I am now looking to set it all up for her.
Does any one have any recommendations as to what I should enable/disable to make the iPad easy to use for her?
Also any recommendations on Apps for the blind? I mainly want to use it for some number work, audio books, audiotary games for when she is on 'free time,' and the ability to put on it videos or pages relating to her school work that she can access herself and listen to independently. I ideally want to be able to put text documents onto it, titled, so she can find them herself and get them read to in, in reference to school subjects and topics as well as putting her own IEP stuff onto it. Am I asking too much?
I know I'm asking a lot, but after fighting so hard to get her one, I really want to get the best from it.
