Ok, that pretty well sums it up. Wife suggested due to lots media about apps supporting the autistic. I found 15 possibilities on my HP touchpad, but only one barely interested him. Now after two months, I found over 100 to start and maybe six to interest him and may even help him to learn speaking. Maybe he might start before he's eight. One app, band of day, gets his interest when heavy rock is on. It says playing even when the ipad shuts dark. Another app, sing it! Stops playing when dark. Is there a way change it to keep playing songs ?
