I really dislike Apple products, so I'm probably biased, lol. I will note that there are grants, etc that provide iPads to schools and, I'm sure, therapy organizations. So that might be why she's using one. My husband has an Android tablet. We have apps with flashcards, etc for Clive as well as little kid games for him. I don't use it that often, but find it easy to use. (about the same as my phone, which is also Android, lol) I know people with iPads, and they seem to have the same apps I'm able to get. So, I'd probably go by cost factor.
