TODAY ONLY there are quite a few great FREE Speech & Language apps available in the iTunes store! From sight words to following directions, parts of speech and functionality apps for children with special needs I definitely recommend checking these out and downloading them as soon as you can! As with anything online make sure they are still free before you download! Here’s a list of a few that I found:
QuestionIt by Language Learning Apps –
…….an educational app for children with autism or other significant language disorders that provides systematic instruction over multiple opportunities to teach children what kind of word answers which type of Wh question. Activities include sorting words by type of question they answer, answering questions about sentences, and answering questions about paragraphs. The app uses faded color cues and errorless learning techniques. The data manager scores number correct out of opportunities for each type of question in each level of each task. Data reports can be emailed from the app. The student is intermittently reinforced with a fireworks display for correct answers.
