How an iPad helped Tom with brushing his teeth

In the 5 months since Tom got an iPad from Hearts and Minds, it has helped him in all sorts of unexpected ways, according to Sue, his Mum:

"As you can see, he now brushes his teeth better, and more willingly using a Brush Time App.  The iPad also got him interested in doing puzzles and colouring, which started on the iPad and has now progressed into an interest in actual puzzles and colouring books, widening his previous interests.

"Although non-verbal he will hold 'conversations' using the talking back animal Apps on the iPad, encouraging him vocally.  He has also improved his recognition of shapes and colours using learning Apps on the iPad, which I can now see in his daily understanding of language. It has really widened his world!"

Could an iPad help your child too?

If you live in Britain, simply collect 165 old mobile phones and the Manchester-based charity Hearts and Minds will exchange them for a new iPad.
