    As suggested, I am submitting a welcome message. I am interested in the iPad for educational purposes for students with special needs.

    I teach, and I've started using my personal iPad and the iPad that belongs to the school.

    Normally, I use a lot of hands-on multisensory methods to teach students with special needs; however, I have one particular student that wasn't responding as well to my methods. I tried him on an iPad, and it was great. It was novel, but the apps would not allow him to do anything else with the virtual manipulatives than what he was supposed to do.
    And I also let the other students take turns using them. I put them on an app that correlates to the IEP objective, and it is great drill-and-practice.

    There are many apps you can download for your students. To name a few that I let my son play with are; Park Math, Kids Money, Zoola, Skyview, and Stack The States. lol you can only imagine the amount of storage left on my little 4s iphone. Keep the charger near. lol.
