It seems at least once a week there is a new article about the iPad and how intuitive kids in the spectrum find it to be.   “Finger flipping”, which is the navigation path of the iPad is 2nd nature to my son Michael.  He continually finds new links within iTunes and the other apps to help him visualize his music as he plays it.   He was watching Roundabout the other day, with the original Roger Dean artists drawings and reading about how the lrics came to Jon Anderson as he was driving to the studio that day.  I’ve been a YES fan for 40 years and never knew the origins of that song, so it was very cool for me to read over his shoulder. 

It seems we all should be demanding iPads for our kids at school.
