Apps could be instrumental in teaching Children with Autism

We all are always in search for ways to teach our children . Research now has proved that Ipad is the ideal learning medium for special needs children, specifically those who are non-verbal.

Why use Ipad? Read this great article on why IPad is a great learning tool for kids with autism.

“The key to finding the best app is not to search in the App Store for the disorder, but by the skill you are trying to address,” says Mark Mautone, President at Integrated Technology for Persons with Autism and Development Disabilities (ITPADD). Mark Mautone offers the following criteria for what parents should look for when making their selections:

  • Developer’s knowledge in the area in which the app was designed
  • App ratings
  • Ease-of-use
  • Functionality

At VitSupp we understand this and have identified a list of useful and engaging Apps for children with developmental delays.
