Technology in Education – Recommended Apps by IEP Goals/Skills and some useful tools

Apps by Goal – Our guiding principle is “Bang for the Buck’. No matter what the cost of the app as long as it provides value for the money we are happy include them here. So far we downloaded over 800 Educational apps and went thru almost all of them. This is a result of all the hard work over the past 6 months.

All the apps listed are reviewed by us and are confident they offer ‘Bang for the Buck’. There are many more apps that may meet this criteria but we haven’t reviewed them. As you can see some of the apps cover more than one Goal/Skill. Make sure you pick the one that covers more than one skill. We will be publishing Goals by App (What goals each app covers) to give you help you decide which apps to buy. Almost 50% of the apps listed are FREE so there is no need to think, just download them to your computer and sync to your device when you need them. Don’t under-estimate these FREE apps. Some of them are as good as their paid counterparts.

Note to Developers: If you think your app provides “Bang for the Buck” and would like to be listed here, please contact us using Contact us page on our website.

    Visual tracking is another possibility. Swirlicity Lite by Sad Cat Software is a great free app. Not just for visual tracking but for relaxation too. Has calming and soothing music to accompany activity. Definitely Bang for the Buck. Fireworks 123 also nice little app and simple for young children. Again free

    This list is great! This will be a nice reference when looking for specific skills. Feel free to use apps I have listed in the LiveBinder I created. They are listed by skills as well, but not quite as specific as your list. The link to the LiveBinder is on the App info page of my blog.

    I would agree with Caroline T. (above) regarding visual tracking or visual stimulating apps.

    Thanks to both the host & Morgan! Just got a new iPhone and working on an iPad – loving the apps for my special needs son & students. iPad may have to wait until Christmas though! :)

    Extra Special Kids :
    RE: Bank for the Buck
    Our app, “Zanny, Born to Run”, won 2011 Mom’s Choice Award for best interactive book app and is consistently on the top ten list for iTunes recommended educational apps. We have a facial/emotion recognition game that we could have released as a separate app, but instead released as a free bonus game along with Zanny. We also only charge $2.99 for the whole thing, when most books are closer to $4.99 and don’t include a therapy game. It’s very important to us that everybody who would like to own our app be able to afford it–because nobody goes into making special needs apps for the money. Anyway, I think Zanny definitely qualifies as offering “bank for the buck”. Hope you think so too

    Wondering if there is a similar list of PC-based apps. I’m looking specifically for apps that are good for people with Autism.
