    I wrote a post ages ago – Davids iPad, my alternative to parenting? In today's post, he is playing with his iPad on the beach. He engages with and uses this device, pretty sure it's not the other way around.

    I have had some experience in teaching and can safely say I think Ipads can be educational, in fact in the last class I worked in the children used them for a lot of maths and reading activities. I don't honestly think using them could lead to autism… I also think there's a place for TV as long as children aren't stuck in front of it for hours at a time. I often wish mine would sit and watch it sometimes, they can't sit still! 😀

    I am not sure the iPad is a trigger for autism, but I do experience the issues that technology and kids on the spectrum can bring. But this isn't due to him using it, just managing his use! There is a place for technology, but also a place for quiet time and no screen time too

    I can't really comment on this as I have no experience with autism whatsoever but I keep seeing technology blamed for just about everything.

    I am the worlds worst fan of technology for children, and mine have almost no iPad time at all, but I don't believe they trigger Autism.

    Articles like that just make me think that the author probably doesn't understand much about statistics. If murderers were found to drink more tea than coffee it wouldn't mean that drinking tea turns people into murderers, there's normally more than one factor involved and articles like that just seem to exist to put blame on people who don't deserve or need any criticism.
