If anyone’s wondering, I went with Chore Pad. Both apps were great for the purpose, but Chore Pad was more visual. Nic needs visual.
Anyway, I am so excited! My little blog will soon be linked to the website of the Delaware County Down Syndrome Interest Group. I look forward to meeting other parents of children with Down syndrome and sharing iPad ideas and experiences.
Meanwhile, Nic and I spent a big hunk o’time today working with new apps that I found. Nic is not the sit-compliantly-and-let-Mom-try-stuff type, and not all apps are SkeeBall or Angry Birds, so we alternated some more seriously themed learning apps with fun apps and YouTube videos from the circus. Stretched the young man’s attention span considerably, and I got to see which new apps I might want to keep and which will be gonners. (New favorite: “SmartyPants School”)
How about you? How do you keep your children on the more serious academic apps when they know “SkeeBall” is just a click away?
