iPad Cases For Autism

There are many iPad cases on the market, but few iPad cases for autism exist. For children with ASD, manufacturers have to take into account things like tantrums, meltdowns, fits of anger, you get the point. Another thing to consider is that some of our kids have a propensity for wanting to remove the iPad from the case. But also, iPad cases for autism may want to protect that home button because we’re often looking to use the iPad as a tool, not always a play thing.

Below are cases that I’ve personally reviewed. All of them are good cases in their own right. I’ve had them in my hands and I’ve evaluated them based on “autism” criteria. But, as the Dad of a child with ASD, I realize that each of our children are different, and that means we may have different qualities we need in an iPad case. That’s why I’ve sorted them into the table you see below.
