iPads. The New Behavior Therapist?

When I first saw the iPad, I must admit, I thought it was a completely unnecessary and awkward-looking device. It wasn’t until I heard how helpful it was for children with autism and other communication disorders that I understood how useful this technology could be. This makes complete sense, too; the iPad, which is simple enough for children to use, is also very appealing to the young ones who love to feel ‘adult’ by using new technology.

Holiday Traditions

Baking cookies is a time-honored tradition for many families during the holidays. When I was younger, my mom and I would bake cookies every Christmas Eve. Before going to bed, we would leave a plate of cookies and a tall glass of milk on the table for Santa. We would also leave a dish of cookies and a saucer of milk by the foot of the table for Rudolph.
