Apps for Autism Spectrum Disorder

Apps for Autism Spectrum Disorder | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"When looking for apps for students on the autism spectrum (ASD), it is important to look at all educational apps and not just those that are tagged as autism apps.They have many of the same learning needs that other students have. This list was developed to provide apps based on common learning characteristics and traits that are typical for students with ASD. It is important to remember that all students learn differently and selecting apps should be based on the unique learning needs of the student. This list is only a sampling of apps available for each skill area. This is not, nor is it meant to be a definitive list. This list is intended to give you a starting place and a rationale for picking."

App of the Week: Map My Globe

App of the Week: Map My Globe | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Developer KidsAndBeyond have put out such a wonderful app with Map My Globe.  Just this week I wrote a post for a lifestyle website that talked about the benefits and importance of teaching our kids about the world around them.  This is the perfect addition to your educational library as it literally maps the globe.  The first page opens up with pictures of the different continents with pictures of flags and famous landmarks in each region.  If you push the blinking arrow it takes you to the next page where we can either have a young woman read to us or read it ourselves.  The introduction asks us if we have ever wondered what continent Nambia was in or what currency the country of Ecuador uses.  For any fun-facts loving kid (and adult) this app is filled with really interesting facts about the world!"
