  11. iPad May Be “Magical,”but It’s Not a “Miracle” R.J. Cooper
  12. 1) If a person has a significant motor impairment that affects their arm and/orhand and/or fingers, then operating the iPad will be a challenge.2) Someone with severe cognitive impairments is definitely going to have achallenge with the iPad. That which you and I take for granted in using the iPad,is completely unknown to the disabled person. They might drop the iPad, try tomouth it, press on the back rather than the front, and many other unfocusedactions.3) Many parents and professionals feel that their learner’s “acting out” is due, inpart, to frustration from their inability to communicate. I agree.
