iPad App Review: Peek-A-Boo Fridge
If the iPad is a motivator for a toddler with feeding issues, this app could be a tool to expose them to a wide variety of different foods. The therapist or parent working with the child could easily pick a few foods featured in the app that needs to be embedded into his or her feeding routine and pair them with the real food, which would increase their understanding of picture object relationships. Overall, this app is best used when it is paired with the real life experiences of the food in the app. Like many apps, the quality of the education lies in how the caregiver presents the information and technology together. If the specialist or family member presents this app in a way that is within context to the lesson or family routine paired with real life objects, the child with special needs would be learning so much more about his or her learning environment using the iPad as the pathway to this skill development.
