Monster List of Apps for People with Autism


The touch screen interface and intuitive nature of the iPad has been a productive and inclusive way to provide educational experiences for people with Autism. Many schools and organisations use specific iPad apps as effective tools in the educational process but what if you had access to a whole suite of tools. This is exactly what these guys have done at iPad Apps & Resources for Autism. Compiled by a parent, an adult with Autism and an SLP; Shannon Des Roches Rosa, Corina Becker and SLP Jordan Sadler,  have collated a monster list of great apps for teaching people with Autism in the following catergories;



Advocacy
Art
Books
Communication
Earliest Learning
File Sharing
Games
General Development
Geography
History
Label and Identifying
Language 
Maths and Pre-Maths
Multiple Activities and Suites
Music
Navigation
Productivity
Puzzles
Reading and Spelling
Science
Self Care 
Social Skills
Social Media 
Social Stories
Speech
Visual Schedules

This is a wonderful resource for parents and schools alike. Take the time to check out the list and identify some of the apps you might already have on your iPads that might benefit some of your students.
