An iPad for special needs homeschooling
Are you looking for ways to use an iPad for special needs you have in your homeschool? Perhaps you don’t know how to keep them in the right app or how to prevent them from accessing things they shouldn’t? Hang in there a minute, I’ve got a tutorial to help you out.
But first, here’s a way to help your struggling readers use an iPad more independently. I’m sure there are some of us who know how to use the speech feature on an iPad for special needs, but in case you don’t, I’ll walk you through right now!

1) Open your settings and click on general
2) Click on Accessibility
3) Tap Speech
4) Select your options
You can turn on just the option to read selected text and/or the option to speak your entire screen (or basically the webpage). You can adjust the rate of speech in the yellow section, but also in the player.
Highlight content is also helpful, it will highlight the text currently being read in a variety of colors from which to choose. For more, watch the live Facebook video below!
