Kershaw County School District (KCSD) ninth-graders may be excited about getting iPads next year, but students in Melanee Harwell-Taylor’s autistic students at Camden Elementary School are already seasoned iPad techies. New data published by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in late March said autism affects one in 88 children in the United States and one in 54 boys in the United States. Autism is a neurobiological disorder that inhibits a person’s ability to communicate and develop social relationships, and is often accompanied by behavioral challenges.
