For many individuals, time on the iPad is a solitary activity. However, the iPad can be used to engage small groups of children in educational and therapeutic activities. This workshop will demonstrate the apps that are available to teachers and therapists that will allow them to use their iPad for group activities in the classroom and in the therapy room!
