I just bought my daughter an iPad 2 for her sixth birthday. She has used a 13" Mac to watch movies, but she cannot quite see well enough to track mouse pointer for anything else and coordinate the movement on the trackpad. She basically is just using it for Skype to video chat with me and movies but her mom has to help her when using it other than she can stick a DVD in and it will autoplay her movies. I bought her an iPad 2 thinking it would be a much better solution as she can touch exactly what she wants to do. Speaking of this, I want to be able to put movie "shortcuts" on her iPad's screen so she can just click the icon and the movie will start; does anyone know if this is possible? Basically like a shortcut that sets it to autoplay a movie. I am looking for some good apps for children with both visual impairments and muscle coordination if there are any plus general education related that may speak the text so she can hear what she sees to help. I feel the school system is failing her miserably, as she is really smart but the school isn't providing text she can see, or enough assistance to learn things. She has been able to say the alphabet since she was 18 months old, but she still cannot tell the difference between certain letters as they blur together, and school is just bypassing that. She can see a letter and knows it, but if there is a word she cannot tell the difference between the letters, so she just ignores it. Basically, I need to find an app that shows text larger so she can see bigger everything on her iPad. I also want educational apps that will help her with all of the things she should know but I would like to be able to have those apps read to her by the iPad at the same time so she can follow along. She speaks two languages fluently and helps me learn things, so I don't understand how it is that the school system is failing her so badly. She can see a 28-point font and that is with glasses, and she has problems with her muscle control and her hands shake as though she has Parkinson's disease. For those curious, it is related to the myelin in her brain which isn't forming properly, but she was born with the condition... there is a movie about it called Lorenzo's Oil, but in the movie the little boy's brain was normal and it began losing myelin. My daughter's brain has sorta rewired, but it affects every muscle in her body including her eye muscles, hands, and even her heart. Please recommend any iPad App you know of that helps kids learn by speaking the text as well as showing it in larger fonts or anything that helps kids with disabilities learn. My daughter is so sweet and an amazing person, and I want to help her enjoy life more and educate herself using the iPad. Thank you very much in advance for any recommendations.
