In this study aimed at finding out the effect of iPad on school preparedness among school children with hearing impairment. In this study, the children attended the national kindergarten in Al-Riyadh. The study sample was divided into control (7) and experimental (8) groups. Children in the experimental group used the iPad for 15 weeks. Results showed improvement of the experimental group in all measured areas. The control group, those who did not use the iPads, improved in both their kinetic and social areas.
