Autism Apps is simply a comprehensive list of apps that are being used with and by people diagnosed with autism, Down syndrome and other special needs. It also includes links to any available information that can be found for each app. The Apps are also separated into over 30 categories, and the descriptions are all searchable, so any type of app is easy to find and download.
Autism Apps was created as a resource for anyone looking for apps for people diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome or other special need. Many people are discovering the many uses that iPads, iPhones and iPod touches can have as tools and resources for people diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, Down syndrome or other disability. Though there are a multitude of apps in the app store that many people diagnosed with autism, Down syndrome or another special need use and enjoy, they can be difficult to find.
Autism Apps links to extensive reviews of the apps written by parents, specialists, and other users usually from first-hand experience. Autism Apps also has links to video demonstrations or video reviews of the apps when they are available.
This version fixes a few bugs. Some users were not able to view reviews of apps and others reported the app crashing. Both bugs have been fixed. Please let us know if you encounter any issue. Thanks!
Ratings and Reviews
OMG! Thank you!!!
We have a 10 yr old with PDD and sensory issues and have been searching for apps to help him but, who has the time to search thru EVERYTHING the app store has to offer? Guess what? These folks did it for us and boy, did they do it right. The apps are categorized ( not only educational apps but Fine Motor Skills & Sensory too) and most apps have not only written reviews but video reviews/ demonstrations so you can check them out to see if it would be appropriate for you child.
Before you buy any more apps please check this one out! Real help for the special needs parent.
I work in an intensive classroom and we just recently got an iPad. I thought finding apps for autism would be easy but it turns out its a little difficult finding good ones. That was until I purchased this app. You can narrow the search down to price, rating, and device. Which is great because my school only lets us download free apps. I have just found three apps that I love for my students and my child. Thanks for creating this apps. I LOVE IT!!!!!
I wish I could give this more than five stars!!! As a mother with two children on the spectrum, This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for! Well done, well organized; an incredibly useful resource! I will be recommending this app to every therapist, doctor, teacher, advocate, and parent involved with ASD, or any similar conditions, that I know! Plus, the developer was very prompt in response to a question, and that always earns bonus stars in my book! ;)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
