Aidan’s Awesome ipad
Big shout out thank-you to Team Aidan contributors who made it possible for him to get an ipad. We’re so excited to use this technology with him. So far he’s had a great time with the
farting fishing app. He’s also found a neon colored drawing app and, of course, his drums. His intro to the ipad was a FaceTime call to Pop. He visually attended very well but couldn’t quite figure out what to do. Liam, our in- house tech support, was playing with Aidan on it last night. Several time I heard, “No Aidan, use your pointer.” Aidan likes to drum and we’re all onto him. Liam has always been a great help in making decisions for Aidan as well, from choosing a wheelchair to working a g-tube. So he’s been helping look at apps as well. He knows what graphics and noises are appropriate for Aidan and he’s organized them all into categories. His next job will be to program Proloquo2go so it’s user friendly for Aidan. I think I’m also going to get Liam to find me a good ipad repair firm, because I’m just waiting for Aidan to drop it on accident and it smashes; hopefully it won’t be anytime soon though! Now Aidan has and will have a way to tell us what’s on his mind. hhmmm…he’s always been the keeper on secrets. I may need to rethink this.
