Ipad Survival/Sanity Tricks for Autism Parents: You Can Lock The Screen!!
We all know that our autistic kids love their iPads! My son loves his, but sometimes all he wants to do is open & close apps for an hour or so, and all I want him to do is play with one app or watch one video for an hour.
Did you know that you can disable the home button on your iPad, thereby forcing the kid to stay within the same app?
So your kid is forced to stay in the same game until you decide!
And you can also lock the touch functionality of the screen.
Ok, so you put on a Sesame video on the iPad. You've already disabled the home button so they can't leave the video to enter any other apps… but now he keeps rewinding the same scene over and over.
You can also disable the touch functionally of the iPad screen so, now they can't rewind or mess with the video.
Ok, so what about those game apps which are great, but have a parents button in the upper left corner that my kid keeps pressing which takes him out of the game experience. You can also just disable the touch functionally of certain sections of the screen.
"My kid will just keep triple clicking the home button and trying passwords over & over.
Well the one thing I didn't mention is that the first time you put in the wrong password it says incorrect password try again in 10 seconds" The second time? "try again in 60 seconds" The 3rd time and every time after?… "3 minutes"
