Is There Life after Your Kid Drops his iPad?

The bad news is that it seems that no amount of padding and casing is going to stop an iPad from taking a beating when the time to take a beating comes.

Nic was running to the car, his iPad in hand.

He tripped.

The boy and his iPad went flying.

Nic dusted himself off and went to pick it up.

Giant crack.

But go figure, the thing still works. Went to “Five Below” and bought a film to put over the screen to protect fingers from cracked glass. That was it.

And Mom is back in search of ideas to make the iPad the tool I want it to be for NIc.

Right now, I’m in search of an app to let me store little videos I make. Like social stories, only video. Nic has a first generation iPad and mine is an iPad2. I have a digital camera and a cell phone to make videos on too.

Any ideas?



About geralynarango

Hello! My name is Geralyn Arango. I write two blogs about two very different topics: Down Gluten, Down Lactose, Down syndrome is about my family's search for a normal life in the face of my son's dietary restrictions, his disability and his wonderfulness. Dr. Mom and the iPads is a blog about my journey to the use of the iPad as an educational tool for my son who has Down syndrome and for the special education majors I teach at a university in Philadelphia. I love to write and hope through these blogs to engage in conversation with people who share an interest in either or both of my blog topics. I am also in the process of revising a soon-to-be published memoir on caregiving...I hope you will stick around until it's ready to go! G
