At What Age Can Kids Use an iPad?
In an age when technology is everywhere you look, it’s not surprising that even young children are getting in on the action. The iPad was released in 2010 and as of June 2012, 84 million have been sold, according to CNET. This tablet computer from Apple has a large, multi-touch screen that kids can play learning games on.
Using the iPad can have benefits for kids. PC World even named the iPad as Toy of the Year in 2010. In a two-week study conducted by PBS, involving children 3 to 7, it was found that educational apps can improve a child’s vocabulary by as much as 31 percent in two weeks. Ann Densmore, an expert in speech and language development, said in an article on HarvardHealth that there are even iPad apps that are helpful for children in speech and language therapy.
