The iPad is a device that can help children and adults with communication problems, a range of motor difficulties, or various cognitive difficulties. Using this tool, they can acquire personal and social skills and integrate in the community on a normative level, and thus make progress. The article describes the iPad as a tool for self-expression, the implications of its use for the entire family, and its use as an integrative and supportive tool, at school and in leisure time.
