I love your list of ASD APPS! GREAT WORK!!!!
I look forward to new apps being posted. I just downloaded one for my son who is also on the spectrum called All About Me. My son knows his name and address, but not his birthday and now we are working on it with this app, the cool part is we put a picture of him at his own party (from last year) so he has the visual along with the text to see his birthday. Oh, maybe you already have this app on your list, I should have checked. If not, it is worth taking a look at it. Have a great day and thanks for taking the time to do this blog! As a parent of two myself, I know how precious time is!!! Kathy Lyons
