Smart Goals. Best iPad Apps for Autism and Asperger's Syndrome. I am the mom of a beautiful and amazing son who just happens to have a diagnosis of High Functioning Autism.

Best iPad Apps for Autism and Asperger's Syndrome

A few months ago I read an article on Blogher called ”The iPad a Near-Miracle for my son.” It immediately caught my attention not only because of Shannon’s beautiful writing and story, but because I am always looking for opportunities to help our son succeed. I am blessed to have a small career here as a product reviewer, so I bravely contacted a lovely Apple PR person about my story. Apple was able to generously loan me an iPad for Nolan and I to try. I am so excited that Apple is noticing us and is interested in what we say about Autism. This is a list of the iPad apps that Nolan really enjoyed and that I believe will help him to develop and encourage the skills that he needs to work on.

We made a video demonstrating just a few apps that we enjoy. IEP Checklist-Free Hidden Curriculum Kids- Free Autism News Feed- $1.99 iReward Chart- $2.99 Nolan loves this. Social Skills. Special Education Apps. The video is simple, but powerful.
