I respectfully disagree about the Ipad. I think the Ipad is useful for grammar drills and even there, finding decent software (that doesn't require human help) is a challenge because writing IPAD apps is generally not very lucrative, they tend to be cheap and flimsy because of that. Most apps are not angry birds.  Language wise youd be better off on a touch tablet PC trying to find a full scale application but not for pragmatics or social skills. Please understand social behavior is social behavior BECAUSE it involves and necessitates others. Your best chance for helping your son is getting a great aide he can be friends with on some level to model that and for that aide to find a willing child who has good social skills to spend some time with your son. Good luck sweetheart.
