10 tips for using an iPad in therapy sessions.

The use of technology with children can be a little controversial. But love it or hate it, you can’t escape technology in one form or another nowadays.  For most children, touchscreens are rather captivating.  It does amuse me when you see a toddler walk up to a TV screen and prod and poke it, then […]
