iPads for Autism Program
The iPads for Autism pilot program, launched by Traverse City Area Public Schools in 2011, provided iPads to nine students with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Aspergers Syndrome. The iPads are loaded with apps specially selected for each student to improve communication and social skills and connect with the student in a way only technology can. With your help, our goal is to put one of these devices into the hands of *all* TCAPS students who can learn and benefit from them.
In addition to a cash donation option for the iPads for Autism program, there is another great way for you to support this program. Click here to make a donation for iPads now.
