Interactive tablets

For a while there, I thought my daughter had her tablet surgically attached to her hand. Some days, I think she still does! And you know what? That’s okay in my book because it’s what she needs to feel calm and communicate when her emotions are heightened. Interactive tablets can come in handy for so many reasons; let’s look at a few.

1. Communication Support: Interactive tablets can be a powerful tool for communication. They offer various apps and software that help individuals express themselves, whether through speech, symbols, or text. This is especially beneficial for participants working on NDIS goals related to communication skills.

2. Learning and Skill Development: Education is a key aspect of NDIS goals. Interactive tablets offer a wide range of educational apps that can help your child learn and develop new skills, from math and literacy to problem-solving and creativity.

3. Emotional Regulation: Many participants may have emotional challenges. Interactive tablets provide calming and sensory apps that can assist in emotional regulation. These tools are valuable for achieving NDIS goals related to emotional well-being.

4. Independence: NDIS often focuses on promoting independence. Interactive tablets can support this goal by offering apps that help with daily tasks, organization, and time management. Your child can become more self-sufficient with the right apps and guidance.

5. Social Interaction: Interactive tablets can facilitate social interaction, even for those who find face-to-face communication challenging. Video calls, social media apps, and online communities allow your child to connect with others, working toward NDIS goals related to building relationships.

6. Entertainment and Recreation: Life isn't all work and no play. Tablets offer a world of entertainment and recreational activities, aligning with NDIS goals that promote a balanced and enjoyable life.

7. Customization: Interactive tablets can be tailored to your child's specific needs and preferences. You can choose apps and features that align with their unique NDIS goals, making the tablet a personalized tool for growth and development.

8. Data Collection: Some NDIS plans may require data collection for progress tracking. Tablets can assist with this by providing apps that record and analyze relevant data, helping you and your child stay on track with NDIS objectives.

In summary, interactive tablets are versatile tools that can support a wide range of NDIS goals. They aid in communication, learning, emotional regulation, independence, social interaction, entertainment, and customization. By incorporating interactive tablets into your child's plan, you can harness their potential to assist your child in achieving their NDIS goals.
