FREE Apps During Autism Awareness Month!!!

This month is Autism awareness month, and free Autism apps are being given away. 

Autism is a developmental disorder that appears in the first 3 years of life.  It affects the brain's normal development of social and communication skills. These apps are designed to model communication skills, identify emotions, and practice sight words.  These are great apps not only for children with Autism but for all early learners. 

One of the free apps that I recommend is ABA Flash Cards - Emotions.  This app has visuals and speech associated with pictures of children displaying different emotions on their faces. 
Autistic children can have a difficult time identifying facial expressions and emotions, and this app can help with that.   It is also helpful for all children to identify emotions as it can help them develop empathy.
