Great posts on apps for autism.

Here’s one from “tech teacher” that caught my eye:

Hi

Just thought I’d drop in and let you know that I’ve been working with and training teachers in ipad technology for the past year. Both for ASD children (my own included) , other kids with intellectual disabilities and mainstream kids.

The beauty of the this technology is not so much “which app” but the engagement it can bring to all … the creative uses are virtually limitless. It is this aspect that I try to get across is that it is your insight in to your own child that will bring the maximum benefit. From exploring music , art , reading , augmentative communications , puppetry, special interests ….

One other simple thing … the ipad is an expensive piece of technology so do not just purchase for a child to use exclusively. Share in the family … I use it , both my children use it at differing times and now my wife uses it. (To play music and relax.)

Even at school … if your child does bring it or it is part of their individual education plan … share it. One way to open up cross talk amongst peers and open up new relationships … whilst your child is not using iot why let such an elegant piece of technology rust away , so to speak.

Just for fun … my top app for high functioning ASD ( which may be myself - undiagnosed) are the comics. They come up beautifully on the 10 inch screen. Accessing relevant literacy muy favourite for the older kids.”
