of New Jersey donated 30 iPads to the Morris-Union Jointure Commission for use in their Developmental
The iPads offer an opportunity to enhance student's learning with direct and
effective use of a highly interactive technology tool. The Morris-Union Jointure Commission DLCs' students
require tactile, visual, and auditory experiences. Practice and repetition with
reading, language, and math concepts, all part of DLC curriculum, is critical
for the goal of preparing students to become active members of their
communities and live and work in supported or independent environments. Use of
the iPads will motivate students to practice new concepts and enhance their
ability to communicate thoughts and learn new concepts. The Apps written for
students with autism include immediate feedback that motivates either
correction of mistakes or moving forward to new learning opportunities.
