Apple has a dedicated section on iTunes to highlight iOS apps for autism acceptance. I read the news on Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism, where several of the apps from Apple’s app collection were described.
Apps for Autism Acceptance
If you are looking for apps to assist with communication, life skills, child development or personalized education, head over to iTunes to view the autism collection. Access the page by clicking directly on this link or on the image below.
Apps for Special Education (in App Store)
If you are browsing the App Store on a mobile device, use the Explore tab to discover even more app categories. I opened the App Store app, clicked the Explore tab, and then headed to Education > Special Education. You will find subcategories that include communication, emotional development, motor and visual perception, seeing and hearing, language development, life skills and trackers.
Whether you are doing computer based research with access to iTunes, or exploring your the App Store directly from your iPhone or iPad, be sure to catch these app collections during the month of April for Autism Acceptance Month. Many developers may offer discounts to encourage access to their products.
