hillavee's picks
  1. Injini: Child Development Game Suite
    Injini: Child Development Game Suite With a plethora of choices and activities, it's the perfect app to use in small group instruction. It incorporates everything there is for students with disabilities-especially the young ones.
  2. Read2Go
    Read2Go Part of my job is spent downloading content from bookshare.org. This just makes accessibility a breeze. Recent updates have made it more stable. It's a perfect reader for those that qualify for bookshare.
  3. SentenceBuilderTeen™
    SentenceBuilderTeen™ The app market is not saturated with apps for older students with disabilities. Kudos to Mobile Education Tools for realizing and going the distance with this great app that teaches students how to make proper sentences.
  4. Math Evolve: A Fun Math Game For Kids
    Math Evolve: A Fun Math Game For Kids A creative and fun way to learn computation! Highly customizable, fun to use and developed by a teacher-what could be better?
  5. Abilipad
    Abilipad The perfect app for struggling writers. Offering word prediction, text-to speech, and a customizable keyboard. Truly ingenious.

I will highly recommend Picture AAC app for iOS - it is a great app that will help nonverbal students to communicate their needs, thoughts and feelings. I find that inability to communicate is the biggest hurdle to learning. The beauty of Picture AAC is that it is simple but still has all the functions I need. I tried other apps before but they either have too many confusing features or is too basic. Don't need to spend all that time to print, laminate PECS cards anymore :)
