Special Apps for Special Kids

Special Apps for Special Kids

I was recently invited to give a presentation about iPad apps that I use in my classroom for another school district. My speech therapist was also a presenter and we compiled a list of apps to share. We separated the list into several key categories: Communication, Autism, Fine Motor/OT, Social, Sensory, Behavior, Fuctional Living Skills, Reading, and Math. I am really happy with the list we came up with. It has a lot of apps that can be used with general ed or special ed classes. Because I teach K-4, most of the apps are geared towards elementary kids but we did try to include some higher level apps as well. The list is extensive so I also want to include some of my favorites:
