Thanks to an anynomous donation, Elias is now the proud owner of the iPad that was suggested for the next step in his total communication approach. We have started the process of getting him accustom to the 'controls' of using the device. We are also working on fine motor skills he needs to effectively use the communication application. He has caught on quickly, as you will witness in the video below. He also seems to be enjoying it, again evident by the laughter and enthusiasm displayed. We are very grateful to this person for providing such an important and exciting opportunity for Elias! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Here is a sample video of Elias learning to 'swipe' and select on the iPad using a children's book. As you will see he has mastered the skill and is having a grand time. Enjoy this first of what we hope to be many video demonstrations of Elias using the device.
