Now parents can learn how to find apps that fit their child’s special needs!
Concepts like social skills, sentence building, and handwriting can be challenging for kids with special needs.
Devices like the iPad can help if paired with high quality educational apps, but finding the right apps can be difficult.
There are nearly one million apps available in the App Store, and it can be a daunting task to find applications that address specific skills.
"7 Easy Steps to Finding The Best Special Needs Apps" gives a parent everything they need to identify a child’s specific areas for development and match them up with the perfect apps for that child!
Author Jack Kieffer, Founder of Autism Plugged In, takes readers step by step through his method for finding apps that fit a child’s specific needs or interests. "Our mission is to ensure that individuals with special needs, including autism, have access to effective, affordable app technology."
Parents, teachers, and therapists will discover apps that address: augmentative and alternative communication needs, behavioral concepts, learning through social stories, curriculum-based apps, math, music, art, language arts, fine motor skills, handwriting, visual schedules, apps designed for adults and teens who have special needs, and more.
This innovative book will help readers: Stop wasting money and time on apps that don’t fit! Learn how to choose a device that is best for their family. Find out how to protect devices from bumps, drops, and the occasional "tantrum throw." Download simple worksheets that help identify and give a name to each child’s needs. Discover ways to give certain apps a "trial run" – for free! Get a jump-start with the "Apps to Get You Started" section of the book where parents can read hands-on app reviews of some of Autism Plugged In’s favorite special needs apps.
