Here you go, one of our most comprehensive lists ever! Happy Tech Tuesday! This list was passed along to me, it was created by some SLPs and OTs at one of the local schools. They created it because all the time parents were saying “Which apps are best for… speech and language….reading and writing….auditory processing disorder…accessibility?” So they started a list and here it is. The best apps for speech and language, the best apps for executive functioning, the best apps for reading and writing….they are all here in one spot! The links will take you to the latest version of the app so you should be able to find it no matter what device you have. I can’t thank the speech therapists and OTs who put this together enough for this list!
