Blogger raves about iPad’s AT capabilites

Blogger Shannon Des Roches Rosa contributed a piece on autism to the blog Blogher.com. In her story, Rosa, who frequently blogs about her family and life with a son with autism, praises Apple’s new iPad for its easy integration into her son’s life:

“Before the iPad, Leo’s autism made him dependent on others for entertainment, play, learning, and communication. With the iPad, Leo electrifies the air around him with independence and daily new skills. People who know Leo are amazed when they see this new boy rocking that iPad. I’m impressed, too, especially when our aggressively food-obsessed boy chooses to play with his iPad rather than eat. I don’t usually dabble in miracle-speak, but I may erect a tiny altar to Steve Jobs in the corner of our living room.”
