The use if IPADS in special education classrooms

I am currently doing research on this topic and I am having difficulties find current literature on this. I feel it is a valuable topic and one that needs to be looked into. My work received a grant and therefore I now have an IPAD in my classroom for my students, many of whom who are on the spectrum. It is helping them so much, they are beginning to use language and they are now able to demonstrate to us their academic abilities that unfortunately we may have never had the opportunity to see.

When technology can narrow the communication gap of students with exceptionalities, then the learning world is open to so many learning possibilities.
