Reid Shoots His Own Video.... on the iPad

We recently bought Reid an iPad for therapy purposes...and I must say it has been THE BEST investment we have made. I will post more about it later...but wanted to share this video real quick that HE made that we had no idea about until this morning..... We've had the iPad for about 2 weeks and he is very self sufficient with it so often we will prop him up in our bed or on the couch with it safely secured on his lap....so we are not always with him when he is playing on his favorite applications. Well this morning we kept hearing the same sound being played over and over again this morning from our room.... we walked in to discover that he was re-playing this video that he must have shot last week sometime because I cannot even remember when he had that sweatshirt on last! We just stood there and looked at each other and then busted up! So...... not only can this guy play independently on his favorite apps and is becoming quite good at them...but apparently he is a budding videographer to boot!

So...here goes our Reid, taping his own mini video with his family none the wiser in the other room! .....little stinker!! :)

Oh, I die from the cuteness. He looks SO happy with himself. :::Swoon:::

My mother was asking me why ipads were so great for kids like Reid, and I just showed her this video and she said "Ok, that's the cutest thing I've ever seen."

BTW, there's an awesome list of apps on http://www.squidalicious.com/2011/01/ipad-apps-for-autism-spreadsheet-of.html


The mom who made it has a kid with autism, but I think a lot o the apps are just good communication/education apps! Thought you might want to check it out!
