When my daughter was diagnosed with a severe form of autism over 11 years ago, my husband and I immediately got to work on finding out different tools, devices, games, and programs that would help her. In many cases, her unique ‘brand’ of autism meant we had to adapt the available tools to her specific needs.
And that’s where this post comes in. Not only is there so much out there for autistic kids–and most of it assuming that all autistic kids are alike–we ran into another major problem: money. It’s not just that we couldn’t afford this stuff, it’s that nobody can afford it. There are seriously apps the cost over $300, mostly for the fact that they know you’ll pay it if it will help your child.
Instead, here’s a list of more economical apps, and many of them have lite editions that let you see how helpful they are before you invest in the real deal.
Yes, there's an app of... apps! This app is a list of apps that others have recommended, and contains reviews, pricing info, links, and more. Remember the title of this post...some of the apps on the market are so ungodly expensive that you can't afford to take the risk in case your child doesn't respond to them. This app will give you more detailed info BEFORE you buy!
