Yesterday, I bought Ruby an iPad. After reading several articles on how user-friendly the iPad is for children and adults with visual impairments, I was sold.
In this video, she is using the free Smart Baby App My First Words. This is the first time she is using it independently. It took only a minute to teach her how to swipe the screen to change the flash cards. She does periodically bump the screen with her nose, which causes the flash cards to advance, but I will work with her on keeping her face back far enough from the screen so this happens less frequently.
I am so excited about the potential that the iPad could have for Ruby once she learns how to use it. Stay tuned for a longer review once we get more opportunities to use it!
