Easter Seals and Autism - With this new technology at their fingertips, our therapists will be able to give parents hands-on demonstrations. This way parents can give these devices a try before making the important decision to purchase one for their child. Therapists will also work with each child individually to recommend specific apps for parents to purchase.
A tablet computer, or simply tablet, is a mobile computer with display, circuitry and battery in a single unit. Tablets are often equipped with sensors, including cameras, microphone, accelerometer and touchscreen, with finger or stylus gestures replacing computer mouse and keyboard. Tablets may include physical buttons, e.g., to control basic features such as speaker volume and power and ports for network communications and to charge the battery. An on-screen, popup virtual keyboard is usually used for typing. Tablets are typically larger than smart phones or personal digital assistants at 7 inches (18 cm) or larger, measured diagonally.
