If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to make up your minds and purchase those last minute gifts.

Here are a couple of pieces of simple, inexpensive and effective assistive technology.

But if you’re looking for something a little higher-tech, we have a few other last minute recommendations that just might put the finishing touch on the gifts for that special someone in your life. For example, a new iPad might fit under the tree more easily.  The smaller iPad Mini or a new iPhone 5 would nestle in a stocking just fine.  From accessible books to video sign language, iOS devices are sure to be a hit with most any user of assistive technology.

And if you regularly read the Assistive Technology Blog, you know we often discuss hardware and software from Apple or software running on iOS products such as the iPad and iPhone.  Did you know there is a way to get a discount on all kinds of Apple products every day?  Check out store.apple.com and click on the Refurbished Products section.  The selection changes daily, but the products listed are as good as new and are discounted anywhere from 10% to 30%.

Happy shopping and happy New Year from MD TAP!
