To start the 2017 school year, I thought it was time to summarise some of the key iPad apps that our school will be using across our classrooms.

2017 iPad App Toolbox for Special Education — Craig Smith

These apps address both core competency needs (communication, social skills, emotional regulation) and academic needs. The apps are predominantly pitched at the early childhood and primary school years as this is the majority population of our school, with some apps that are very effective in our high school classes as well. If you know of any apps that I haven’t listed here that you think should be in a Special Educators toolbox for 2017, leave them in the comments below and I’ll add them to this page.

If you are interested in any of the workshops or consultancy opportunities I’ll be running this year with Autism Spectrum Australia, you can contact me on Twitter at @wrenasmir.
