Tablet technology has created some unusual and clever strategies for students, especially those with special needs. Sometimes we don't even know what those strategies are until we put the technology in the hands of talented teachers and motivated students. iPads have helped to mitigate the challenges some children face, with surprising results. Thinking creatively about what children can do, what they need, and what technology offers has begun to level the differences between the abled and the differently abled. We all benefit in the end.
