Intellectually disabled children in Singapore benefitting from the iPad

Children with learning disabilities in Singapore are getting some help from Apple's iPad, according to this story from Today.
One disabled student went from being uninterested in drawing, to winning a card design competition. Others have learned better control of their behaviour and have improved their communications skills. 
These remarkable changes were observed after just six months of a special pilot project conducted at Towner Gardens School (TGS), run by the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), which caters to children with learning disabilities and developmental delays.

At the heart of the program is a device that many of us are familiar with and use on a daily basis - Apple's iPad.
