Buying iPads for autistic students may draw taxpayers’ ire in this tough budget season, but some educators say it is a cheaper and more effective way to help them. An iPad costs about $600 and the “apps,” or programs to load on it, another $100 to $200, said Mike Cummings, the acting superintendent in Milford. Milford recently purchased three iPads and provided them to families of autistic students to use at home. The district owns the electronic devices, which must be returned. “It clearly is the wave of the future, in terms of its educational usefulness,” said Cummings.
