iPad meet Owen...Owen love iPad.



Best purchase ever for this kid, other than his therapy costs. Ryan came home a couple days with this, after seeing Owen love his friend Mak's iPad. As soon as Ryan added the Apps we thought he would love, gave it to Owen - he took off with it. He used that thing like it was his job, he picked his favourite apps to obsess about - it was love at first spongebob app :)

We put a lot of shape and puzzle apps on his iPad, and of course lots of learning tools for him. We have not purchased the Communicative Apps as of yet, but we will in time. It is amazing to see this guy use this iPad.. he knew how to maneuver it almost immediately.. amazing.

Right now, his favourite games are, In the night garden, spongebob and the puzzles.. this is keeping him from obsessing about what is on the television, taking a break from his love for youtube, and most of the time, he is learning as well.

I am really hoping this will help him when we are waiting for appointments, and hoping especially for distraction with his haircut issues. I have attached some pictures of Owen and Maddie playing with the iPad..there will be more to come :)
