This is really a MUST HAVE App for parents/teachers of children on the autism spectrum. This App allows you to track your child's happiness, stress, activity level, sensory arousal, and even weather on a daily basis. Once you have inputted this information for a number of days, you can see a graph of all of this information and it may allow you to identify triggers and specific correlations between your childs behavior/mood and the environment. This App is available on both the iPad and the iPhone in a free Lite version or the full version for $9.99.
This App has a little bit of everything you might need in the field of early education. There are puzzles, patterns, farm animals, seek-and-find, matching, tracing, colors, and much more. I currently have the lite version, but the full version ($29.99) is on my wish list. It is expensive, but from what I can tell, very worth it if you want a great education App for your child.
This FREE App is a great one for hearing both the names of animals as well as the sounds that they make. This App has both the English and Spanish names for each of the animals and is a favorite of the children I have introduced it to.
This is a great App for identifying animals from a set of three or more, for example, "Touch the cow!" I love this App because there is little negative feedback if the wrong choice is selected, it simply deters you from that answer and encourages you to pick another animal. I also have this game in "Zoo," "Colors," and "Toys." While the Farm Animals is Free, the other versions are $.99.
This App allows children to trace capital letters, lowercase letters, numbers, shapes as well as words. You can even add your child's picture and have your child trace the letters in their own name! The App uses entertaining tracing techniques to encourage your child to stay within the lines. This is a FREE App and is very much a useful App for when children are learning to write.
