Hi Maria,
We had a student with a similar situation.
He was able to use and iPad slightly more successfully after we got an iPad holder that pilots use. It straps securely to the thigh.
However our student needed a scribe( and still does) and used Kurzweil 3000 for all reading assignments.

Does anyone have experience using iPad software with an individual with Spastic Dystonic Quadriplegic CP? The student is non ambulatory with limited use of his hands. We are looking specifically for a software or product that will allow him to write essays and papers independently. He has eye gaze technology at home but it is large and cumbersome and he is looking for something to enable him to be more independent in the classroom setting that will not be bulky to tote around.
