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.

Preposition Builder

This app is a wonderful learning tool for all kids at some point in their development. We found this app especially helpful with ESL students, of all ages. Educreations: DIY Whiteboard Video Tutorials on the iPad. The new app from Educreations is available in the Apple App Store today (iTunes link).

Educreations: DIY Whiteboard Video Tutorials on the iPad

The app is designed to make it easy to create, narrate, and record whiteboard video tutorials on the iPad and to share them with others. A Web version of the startup's whiteboard app has been available for some time now, but it's the native app for an iPad that makes this sort of tool make sense -- it's so much easier to write on a whiteboard with the finger than it is with a mouse, if nothing else. Educreations is hardly the only app like this available for the iPad (I covered the very similar app ShowMe over on MindShift this summer, for example).

But while Educreations' iPad app might be late to the whiteboard app market, its entry is a solid one. Educreations hosts the video creations themselves on (helpful for schools that block YouTube), and teachers using the site can opt to share videos privately with a set group of students or share them publicly so anyone can see them.

Apps for Literacy Support. The iPad as RTI Intervention Toolkit. While waiting for the iPad to arrive in my reading intervention classroom, I’ve had a lot of time to think and plan how I will use the device.

The iPad as RTI Intervention Toolkit

Ground Rules I don’t want hundreds of apps. I’m looking for a few favorites. I don’t want more drill and kill. The reading intervention programs I teach do their fair share of drilling and killing (to great success) so I don’t need more of the same. I want the iPad to help me run my intervention program like a gifted enrichment program, providing the spark that interests students in learning and helps them apply skills that they should not be learning in isolation.
