Is your child autistic? Trying to decide if an iPad could help your child? You are not alone! In the UK, it is not uncommon for iPads to be utilized by children of all ages with autism. If you have just bought an iPad for your autistic child, then you may be curious as to what apps are best to aid development.

April is Autism Awareness month, and Apple has curated a fantastic selection of apps in the app store. Keep checking to see special offers, discounts and freebies throughout April and share with any friends or family who could also benefit.

What’s the best app for my child with autism?

There are plenty of different apps that can help you and your autistic child in different ways. There are communication apps which use visual or text input, apps to help with day to day activities and games which are simply fun to play together.

The kind of apps that will work best for you depends on your child’s abilities and interests. Non-verbal children with autism can come along leaps and bounds with the introduction of an AAP communications app. Games can also be a good disguise for learning!

Throughout this month we expect there to be a varied selection of discounts and freebies available on the app store.  Please bookmark this page to your favourites and check back often!
