So difficult child has horrible handwriting. He cannot even read what he writes, he gets work turned back to him as the teachers cannot read it......not for petty reasons it truly is that bad. I bought him a little 11 inch laptop. If he only plays on it? I will take it away. He can take it to school and use it in class. I bought trend micro (after renate it was only $5) and that had parental controls I can put on it. Bought the warranty thing that covers every thing except animal damage and intentional damage, so covers spills and drops, cracks, and all else. I really hope he uses this to help him at school, I know he will play on it but I so hope he will use it ast school also. I know I can push for the school to get him an alphasmart, but I can afford it, and who knows how long it will take the school to get one if they can? And then I don't know if he cream take it home. He had been really good with his new phone. Time will tell.
