Another five app reviews for the last month: these are AutisMate, Injini, Thomas the Tank Engine Game Pack, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and all the apps in the iHelp range (there are about fourteen currently available).
My latest app review is a slightly different format where I’m making a direct comparison between 6 apps for roughly the same purpose. All of these allow the user to touch symbols on the screen, producing audio from the iPad, as a method of communication.
This week I have had the very great pleasure of attending the International Meeting for Autism Research in San Sebastián / Donostia in northern Spain. Loads of things about the conference were great, not least the extraordinary venue and the beautiful city with its delicious local cuisine.
There’s an issue here which has been building up in my mind for some time so I wanted to put my thoughts down. I hope they might be of use and interest to both researchers in the field, and to parents or practitioners supporting people with autism.
Here we go with another six app reviews: I’ve tried to go beyond my usual pre-school remit but it seems that there are far fewer apps out there being targeted for older children, adolescents and adults with autism.
Me and my daughters going blue for World Autism Awareness Day 02.04.2013 – jumping the gun a bit by posting the night before, sorry!
