Brook Park Elementary School teacher Polly Harker received a grant from Answers for Autism as part of the organization’s spring 2011 grant cycle. The grant was used to purchase iPads as well iTunes gift cards to purchase applications for her special education students. Students actively participated in researching products, prices, taxes, shipping and all other aspects of the purchase. The students are also involved in selecting applications for educational topics they are interested in. Ever since receiving the iPads the students have enjoyed using the new technology to learn new skills as well as reinforcing skills they are learning in the classroom.
