At two schools in Australia, students with disabilities are using iPad devices to better communicate and participate in classroom lessons. The Gowrie Primary School is using the technology in its special-education classrooms as part of a program piloted at Canberra's Malkara School. Educators say the students, who have verbal difficulties, have used the devices to create stories and express themselves. Already, the students have improved their communication skills, as well as their literacy and numeracy abilities.
