Summary "To guide parents and teachers in the effective use of this amazing new technology, special education expert Barbara Albers Hill has written a complete guide to using tablets to help children with learning differences. 'Breaking Through' is divided into two parts. Part One tells you everything you need to know about using electronic tablets. [...] Then Part Two serves as a complete but concise consumer's guide by providing specifics about tablets, adaptive accessories, and a wide selection of apps designed to develop particular skills. [...] Perhaps most important, you'll discover how to transform your tablet into an effective educational tool that is durable and fun to use - even if your youngster faces great physical difficulties.
