We posted about Danny's success with the iPad earlier this week and now we wanted to post another success story we found.
Shannon Rosa @shannonrosa (on twitter) posted an amazing article on her blog: http://www.blogher.com/ipad-nearmiracle-my-son-autism It is about her son Leo who has autism and all the success he has found with the iPad. Here is a small part of the article:
"My son Leo's life was transformed when a five-dollar raffle ticket turned into a brand-new iPad. I'm not exaggerating. Before the iPad, Leo's autism made him dependent on others for entertainment, play, learning, and communication. With the iPad, Leo electrifies the air around him with independence and daily new skills. People who know Leo are amazed when they see this new boy rocking that iPad. I'm impressed, too, especially when our aggressively food-obsessed boy chooses to play with his iPad rather than eat. I don't usually dabble in miracle-speak, but I may erect a tiny altar to Steve Jobs in the corner of our living room."
