The National Association for Child Development (NACD) designs individualized Targeted Developmental Intervention (TDI) programs for individuals of all ages, ranging in function from the gifted to the severely brain injured. These programs are taught to the families to implement at home. NACD has found their caseload to benefit greatly from the use of the iPad and its various applications. This list was donated by one of their clients that works for Apple.
