Young children typically learn skills and knowledge through play and the exploration of their environment. In the last few years, many preschool children have also had the experience of playing on their parent's smart phone and/or tablet. Although, there is some research that indicates that exploration that includes the use of digital technologies can support the development of preschool children, research looking specifically at learning with the iPad for preschool children is just beginning to emerge. The focus of this study was to look at the use of the iPad by preschool children with special needs over a 6 week period of time.
