    Default What are some good ipad apps for an ASD child?

    My DS is getting an Ipad on Thursday from his speechie(she organized it and bought is with the funding), and I have already have a small list of good apps from his teachers at his Kindy. But was just wondering if there were any good ones you found helpful and useful?

    i love these 3 most:

    *school writing - its basically as it says, its school writing in qld font, with aussie voice overs!

    *Articulation! Pro - very exy but the best speechie app i've found.

    *Choiceworks- has emotion boards, schedule boards, waiting boards. BRILLIANT app with so much in it for around $10.

    Oh, and *Serenity- an app with calming scenes and music. $1.99. Great for calming kiddlets and great for rest times.

    Speechy should have a good idea of what apps are good, our speechy comes up with speech activities based on different apps (doesnt even necessarily need to be speech realted but she turns it into speech work) there is a book called 'apps for autism' it has listings of every app and how they are good for kids on the spectrum maybe have a look at that, or ask speechy to grabnit for you with the funding as well.

    There's an app called 'Autism Apps' which is a free app that is a library of free and paid apps tried and tested and recommended for SN kids

    My favourite I downloaded for a friends child is a jigsaw puzzle ste called 'How I Help My family' it starts very easy and then builds up, it shows pictures of normal family activities and a child being involved.
