Today, April 2, is World Autism Awareness Day. To mark the occasion, a large number of excellent iPad and iOS apps are on sale at deep discounts or even available for free.
The iAutism site has a great list of the apps that are on sale or free – with good details on each of them:
This post presents a list of these apps for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch divided by categories. Those categories are only indicative, and some apps could be included in more than one category. There are apps specifically designed for people with autism and other which are aimed to help people with special needs in general, and other that are totally generic.
Many of these apps are normally priced at very premium rates, so the discounts available are in turn quite substantial as well.
I’ve written on many occasions here about how much positive impact iPad apps have had with autistic and special needs learners – and have also hear first-hand from teachers about how valuable iPad apps have proved in this area.
