Received the following email from Rhoda. Can anyone help?
As editor of Tele-Read, maybe you can help us with a technology request. My friend’s grandson is bright, loves to read, but doesn’t speak and lacks the fine motor skill to turn pages on his iPad book reader. Is there any software or device that could turn the pages for him?
Could you also ask if they know of an input device, do they know how a non-technical person would hook the input device to the iPad or computer?
