<p>One of the obys has a disability and the school recommended a tablet PC to allow him to take notes and record at the same time. </p>
<p><br>
A friend pointed us in another direction, to a smartpen.  We've looked at all sorts of video demos and reviews like <a href="http://www.chipchick.com/2010/07/livescribe-echo-smartpen-review.html" target="_blank">this one</a> and have got one.  I figure that if the oby doesn't take to it I could use it.  It synchs the notes with the sound so that you can jump back to what was said when the note was taken.</p>
<p><br>
Will let you know what we think.</p>

<p>That's great grizz.  In the Special Ed class I took this spring, I was amazed at some of the technology available to help students and workers. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I think the oby needs a tablet too.  LOL, just because I want him to have all the gadgets. </p>

<p>  Yes, let us know! DS has   some fine motor  issues and currently in HS they provide the notes for him  but as he progresses he will need a way to keep up with notetaking   ( he wants to be a civil engineer.. so will be college bound in  3 years!) It is great that there is new tech to help them keep up with the notes, because there are some brilliant minds walking around who just need a little help with some really minor handicaps that should not stop them from being what they want to be! </p>

No worries. Colleges have note takers too. They were good jobs for students who took great notes because all you had to do was photocopy your class notes for the person.<br>
