New Feature! APP Attack!

Starting today, we are excited to announce a new weekly feature on our blog! Every Monday, check back for the latest APP Attack! With the iPad being mentioned in every other tech news story, it's no wonder there are so many APPS available.

Our staff will highlight at least one new APP each week and provide you with a quick review. Hopefully, these will help guide you towards a good match between the features of the APP and your needs.

To get us started off right, here are a handful of APPS that we have found helpful when working with students and adults with disabilities.

IEP Checklist

This FREE APP provides guidance to parents and teachers as they develop the student's IEP.

Tap Speak Button

This simple $9.99 APP allows you to mimic the function of the Big Mack Switch. Simply record a message and then press the button to hear your message. Great for cause and effect activities!

Model Me Going Places 2

This FREE APP can be used as a visual teaching tool to assist an individual with a disability as they navigate the community. Simply click on the desired location and step through the pictures of people modeling appropriate behavior for that setting.

Have you used the APPS mentioned above? Leave us a comment and share your experience.

Do you have a favorite APP you would like to see highlighted? Let us know - maybe you could even be a guest contributor!
