A private school for students with learning disabilities in Encino, in California, uses iPads in the classroom to help students grasp concepts in all subjects. The students use the devices to learn fractions, study the periodic table, master cursive writing and practice reading skills. "This is not a crutch; it's definitely a ramp. It's assistive technology. The students don't depend on it or rely on it, but it certainly helps strengthen concepts and skills," teacher Karla Rivera said.
