The iPad is increasing the quality of life for many individuals on the autism spectrum through applications providing assistive communication and facilitated learning.
Insurance groups will cover the cost of more expensive assistive communication devices, although they are typically 10-15 times more expensive than the iPad. Insurance companies do not cover the cost of the iPad and appropriate apps because they say they don't have a medical code for it. Well, looks like it's time for a code to be created!
