    I work for a company that takes care of people on the developmentally disabled waiver.. I use my ipad for teaching them how to say things and be able to function better.. To be able to express, How they feel what they want ya know.. Alot like a baby, Learning to take it's first steps.. It takes time but they are not the only ones learning, I ran across this I can help them so much better.. I give kudos to apple because this really has been helping my clients out.. They don't get to have very many cool things, but now their is something for everyone i love my Ipad.. Does anyone else use the Ipad for this purpose if so, I want to hear how you are doing an what tips you might have?? I am open to any suggestions because i still struggle with mine, An anyway i can possibly help these clients to learn how to live fuller and better lives by being able to express themselves.. I want to know what you think. Thank you. if you guys want please email me too
