App Lists Annotated by Disability
Apps for each disability are thoughtfully explained to help teachers and parents understand how and why they are used. This list is helpful to understand the intent of the app before exploring it on your own.
This curated list includes seven app categories: one for social cues, one for self-discipline, one for communication, one for math, and two for reading. Clear annotation and explanations accompany each.
