Tozzle is a puzzle app used mostly for kids who are 2-5. This app is great for autistic kids because it helps them learn what everyday things are! It’s a cute and simple app that I loved. You can download the free version which means you only get two puzzles, or you can grab the $1.99 version. Tozzle received great reviews! Ashliz:) state that, “Me and my family were in a restaurant and my 2 year old brohter was getting fussy so I downloaded this for hime because his mom has it on her ipod! He loves it and tbh I didn’t think he could do it but it doesn’t eve take him a minute! It keeps him quiet for hours!:) Thanks bunches for this app!!!” “My 2 year old LOVES this and it’s so easy to use he can do it himself!,” said Mombos. As you can see, this app is great for toddlers and very interactive! I give Tozzle a 5/5 in educational value and a 5/5 in entertainment. As for the feedback, it also deserves a 5/5! Great app!

A few weeks ago, I posted about an app called MyVoice made by some pretty amazing people. Well, they have recently added a scanning feature to their app which enables people who have trouble with touch screens and also are influenced by disabilities, to have more ease in using their app. Thousands of people were already using this app before this awesome feature came along and now thousands more will soon start using it. I got the privilege to test this app when they first put it out on the market and I fell in love with it! This new innovation makes it 100% better than before! It’s amazing how much these people are striving to help kids/adults with disabilities have more of an ease in life and a huge boost of confidence. I love this app and you won’t be disappointed when you get it. Definitely deserves 5 stars all across the boards!

Autism Stories is an app for anyone influenced by autism. Splaysoft’s main goal for creating this app is to bring the autism community together so people can learn more about autism, share their stories, and show everyone that they are just as capable as anyone else. With this app, you have the choice of seeing pictures, reading stories, chatting with people, and even watching videos. Right now, it’s free. There are no customer reviews, so go out and be the first one to review it and help them make this app better! I love what the main goal is. I give Autism Stories a 5/5 in educational value, and a 4/5 in entertainment value. Unfortunately since no one has yet to review it and the app still is new, I give it a 0/5 in feedback provided to parents/teachers.

Autism News Reader is an app designed by Splaysoft, LLC. to take the newest news about Autism and bring it straight to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. With any new discovery or story, Autism News Reader fetches the news and sends it to the app for as little as $0.99! Sadly, it is slow due to the recent update. Special Apps, Special Kids proclaims, “Minus one star for the neon yellow ad banner and the full page pop up ad asking me to get their new forum app. Why is this in a paid app? And minus one for being incredibly slow at time. I feel it used to be better. I’ll stick around to see what updates come.” I give Autism News Reader a 3/5 on educational value for the great stories it has provided, but a 1/5 in entertainment because many people say they would rather not have the app anymore because of the ads and the speed. Feedback provided to parents/teachers, though, is a 4/5 because I learned exactly what the problems were just by reading the reviews. They were very straight forward, true, and all the same.

My Play Home is an exciting app about the home life. All you do is interact because you control every move a character makes or does! You can put a CD in a CD player, wash dishes, eat cereal, and much much more. While I was using the free version of this app, I realized that any child using this app could learn the basics of an everyday routine! It’s a great teaching app and all the movements are made by the user of the app. As much as I loved the app though, I think it could still use some work. I give My Play Home a 3/5 for educational value, a 4/5 in entertainment, and a 2/5 in feedback provided to parents/teachers.

MyVoice is an app anyone can get for free that helps children, especially with autism , speak. Not only does it provide great pictures that you can replace with your choice to help you to navigate with, but it also provides different categories for a conversation such as “I want” or “Hello.” It was super easy for me to navigate through. Not only is this app portable and great, but also, you can take the time to plug it up to a computer. When you do this, it transfers all your information from your device to the computer. If you don’t see anything you would like to say or a category you would like, just click the add button and you can create your own category or add in words that you would like in a certain category! For a quick fix, you can select the keyboard section and type exactly what you want it to say. Then click speak. This app even has GPS location! Overall, I give this app a 5/5 for educational value and a 5/5 for entertainment value. I heard great feedback from people using this app as well as the awesome people who created this app! It definitely earned a 5/5 for feedback. I recommend this app for anyone looking for speech help!

Hi! My name is Morgan and I’m a freshman. Each year, the freshman class takes on the challenge of a freshman project. This year, the theme was for you to chose something you enjoy doing that involves technology that could potentially change something for the better. I chose to interview autistic kids/caregivers who are involved with technology. I have found already that technology, mostly apps, plays a huge roll in helping kids with autism learn. It can even help them with everyday things like brushing their teeth or even getting dressed. I hope you will follow up with me on this exciting journey! It’s gonna be a great ride.
