iPhone Apps for Children with Autism

The advent of smartphones gave parents of children with autism a much needed pool of resources.  Communication with your non-verbal child has been easier and less complicated.  I have not reviewed most apps found on the iPhone, but my son, Dale can become very preoccupied when given time to play on it.  Time can pass for hours!  Some help you can get from the iPad includes: 
 

  • Voice Output
  • Sign Language
  • One-Touch Switch
  • Text-to-Speech
  • Articulation
  • Encouragement
  • Listening and Auditory Processing
  • Language Comprehension
  • Vocabulary
  • Concept Development
  • Video Modeling
  • Social Skills Group Activities
  • Eye Contact and Body Language
  • Hygiene & Pre-Vocational
  • Graphic Organizers & Visual Supports
