Leisure and learning apps
The list of applications of iAutism includes many specific applications for people with autism. But are there more useful applications for them? Yes, of course. There are already some 300,000 applications for the iPhone / iPod and another 60,000 for the iPad. Among them, especially in the areas of learning and games, there are also tens of thousands of applications. We face a daunting task of selecting those that are more appropriate, but lists here can be endless and diverse.
We have already analyzed some of these apps in the Leisure/Learning Apps section of iAutism, but at the Links post you can find other lists of applications available in Internet. The longest lists usually include apps for entertainment, multimedia books, writing, language learning, mathematics, music, singing, drawing, educational games, etc.
If you are interested in this subject (and you should be interested), I recommend specially these three lists:
and I also recommend taking a look from time to time at least to these two blogs:
– Babies with iPads, devoted to the use of iPads for children with various disabilities
– moms with apps, which talks about apps for children in general
In the sidebar of this blog, in the box titled as “blogroll” you will find other blogs on the subject of iPad/iPhone/iPod apps for people with special needs.
