Apps For Autism- Six Excellent Apps for Your Teenager or older student Part 2

In the first part of this blog post I highlighted 3 of 6 apps; some of the apps come in sets of two or more. For the sake of this post I counted these sets as a single app simply because they can be used and have been used collaboratively and together make an all-inclusive tool kit.

Working with hundreds of students and alongside many SLPs, OTs and Educators, through time and many trials, together we’ve been able to compile a list of apps that tend to be effective with the majority of our students. Effective in that they are engaging and fun for the student while providing a means to achieve preset goals.

It gives me great satisfaction to be sharing these apps with you. Hopefully many of you find them as useful and effective as we have.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please make a comment.
