Apps for Autism: Revised and Expanded

Author(s): Lois Jean Brady

Autism? There’s an app for that!

Award Winning Book:

  • Benjamin Franklin Award, Independent Publishers Association
  • International Naturally Autistic People Award for Technology

Actually, there are more than 200 apps for autism. This book will guide you through them, so you can confidently utilize today’s technology to maximize your child or student’s success! Speech Language Pathologist Lois Jean Brady wrote this book to educate parents, teachers, and other professionals about the breakthrough method she calls “iTherapy”—the use of Apple products (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) and various apps to meet students’ individual educational goals.

Lois believes that all persons on the spectrum can learn how to use technology in a way that is relevant to them. She shares important tips on how to use apps responsibly and effectively by maintaining a child centered, team approach to teaching and learning. Her approach takes into account the individual’s interests, strengths/challenges, vision, motor planning, attention, sensory processing, memory, cognitive ability, environment, and access to tools. Lois also coaches adults on how they can use prompting and reinforcement techniques to help establish and generalize skills learned, until students are able to consistently demonstrate the skills in various environments (home, school, etc.).

For those who are new to the wonderful world of apps, worry not! Lois provides helpful sections on how to get started, including:

  • Choosing an iDevice
  • Basic iDevice Operations
  • Opening an Account
  • How to Download an App from iTunes

and more!

But what about apps that were released since this book was published? Again—Lois has you covered! Just visit this book’s companion website AutismApps dot org for reviews of new apps that made the grade.

“Lois has taken an important leap in writing this book, providing a much-needed primer for considering the newest, mobile, educational technologies … For parents, teachers, and therapists, it is important to understand what the individual apps can and cannot do, and to be able to carefully consider features relevant to individual needs. From communication to literacy, recreation, and accessories, Apps for Autism provides a wealth of useful information to read and reference.”
—Samuel Sennott, a Ph.D. Student in Special Education and Augmentative
and Alternative Communication at Pennsylvania State
University, and co-creator of the app Proloquo2Go
