Apps on the iPad can be an invaluable resource.  The great thing about apps is that they can be implemented by family members, and don’t require professional support (and the associated fees!).

Most of our readers know that we both have family members who are or who have been affected by autism. We are well-aware of the cost burdens on families, and the need to find cost-effective resources. Goodness knows we buy educational materials all the time, and we know how expensive they can be.

The good news about apps are several:  they are convenient, usually fun, usually effective (at least for the generalization of skills),  mostly decently price, and can be a helpful/practical addition to your toolbox.

Here is our current list of apps that we have used.  If you have any that you would like to share with us, please post in the comments! We are always looking for new apps that can help our kids. We are especially interested in scheduling applications and sequencing applications so please share your knowledge.
