A charity is buying my son an iPad as there is an app we can use to try to help him develop some communication, he currently doesn't communicate other than guide us to what he wants and push our hands to it. He is nearly 9 and has a mac on which he mostly uses iTunes to play music. He can do various things on it, he isn't interested in the internet he just likes videos and music really. There is an app for the iPad which costs about £100, this will enable the iPad to work like an £8000 communication device, so its a fantastic opportunity. However, he is not gentle with things, he isn't destructive at all but once he was finished playing with an item he will just drop it on the floor or push it off a table as it is in his way. An iPad would not last long! We really want a case that allows him to use it without risk of breaking it, or at least minimises the chances of him breaking it. It wouldn't be a bad thing if it made it splash resistant too as he may spill his juice near it from time to time. I have seen one padded case that looks good - the otterbox defender series, I was wondering if there was one that offered even more protection? Please don't suggest he doesn't have one, this could change his life, he gets so frustrated as he is often unable to let us know what he wants and we rarely know how he feels, he does have a limited understanding and is starting to learn PECS, he isn't interested in any sign language. We can't afford the alternative of £8000, not that that would offer any more protection and certainly wouldn't allow him to have his music and videos with him when we go out, so an iPad is an obvious choice. Any helpful suggestions?
