Students with learning disabilities often have trouble with study skills like getting and staying organized—a crucial executive function skill—and remembering what needs to happen and when. Darla Hatton and her teenage daughter have researched and/or tested these 13 apps, and found them especially helpful. They know that every person has slightly different needs, but it’s worth taking the time to find out which apps work for your child.

 "Children and teens with learning disabilities sometimes have a hard time with social skills and behavior, including reading or communicating nonverbal signals. The following mobile apps may provide your child or teen with some high-tech support. Although we did extensive research on available apps, we also learned that just because “there’s an app for that” it doesn’t mean that it’s right for everyone."


Darla Hatton and her teenage daughter have reviewed these 10 apps in Apple products for you to try out.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 12, 2013 3:15 PM

This site developed by Moms of Dyslexics provides a set of apps that can support dyslexics and struggling readers. As a Mom of an adult dyslexic, I want to thank these Moms who have created this site for families that have a child with dyslexia.

 

Here are the apps they have reviewed on this site:

> Sound Literacy-$24.99 Sound Literacy can be used in conjunction with any curriculum that emphasizes phonemic awareness, phonological processing, systematic phonetic instruction, or word building with ‘meaningful word parts’.

 

> Dyslexia Quest- $1.99: The Yeti Master will take your child on an adventure while testing working memory, processing speed, visual memory, phonological awareness, auditory memory, and sequencing skills.

 

> Montessori Crosswords-$2.99: Highly rated and based on Montessori learning methods, this app will aid in the development of reading and spelling skills through phonemic awareness.

 

> Spell Trekking-Free:  Your child will learn to spell while trekking through space on the S.S. Spell Trek.

 

> Letter Quiz-Free and Full Version-$1.99: Consists of four games to help your child learn letter recognition and writing practice.

 

> Dyslexic Like Me-$1.99:  The purpose of Dyslexic Like Me is to teach the child what dyslexia is and about successful people who also have dyslexia.

 

> See Read Say-$1.99:  The visual nature of a dyslexic can make learning sight words difficult.

 

> Phonics Genius-Free:  Phonetic awareness is essential to reading and this app takes it to a new level.  The app contains thousands of words grouped into 225 phonic categories.

Crystal clear. I truly cannot understand why we don't make any profit of this at schools. As a related issue, also absolutely worthy for  those high skilled learners at our own schools, instead of searching only  for individual gateways.

Smart phones are an incredible educational tool for both educators and students. I have an Android Smart Phone and I can do pretty much everything with it that I can do on my computer or laptop or tablet. This means that I always have access to my data, files, information, and can do work anywhere. Students have the same ability with their smart phones. They have access to information, class resources, and so much more at any time. Instead of buying a $200 graphing calculator, they can buy a $0.99 app. There are tons of great apps out there for educators and students to use.

 

Here are some mobile / smart phone apps and resources for students and teachers:
