Some moms from SensiGirl's class got together with her teacher to help with a grant the teacher was writing to get iPads for her classroom. We had lots of information about apps to share so here is part one of our findings.

For communication apps we had some new information, besides Proloquo2Go there are two more apps, they are all expensive, so choose carefully:

proloquo2Go

We also discussed social stories and came to the conclusion that you really need to make your own stories for some situations. Here are the apps:

We agreed that Talking Ben and Talking Tom are not good apps for our children with language learning delays. We had to delete those apps. Our children just ended up screaming at it to hear themselves scream.


A special thanks to SensiGirl's teacher and Ms. Liz and Ms. Marjorie for all the great info.
