Favourite Apps

You can always download Autism Apps which lists lots and lots of recommended apps from parents.

Here is a list of the apps we use at home and LOVE for Tasmim 4, and Angus, 3 (and I've listed some for parents too). Most of them available free and I generally don't pay more than 99cents or $1.99, unless it is something very special. I'd love to hear what apps you like to use on your Ipad or Iphone!
