Look what's coming soon :). The AppyMall!!!. This will redesign how parents and teachers will search for apps. The AppyMall is produced by Siva over at Technology in Education on Facebook. Siva has been working hard with many different people from the app industry along with parents and educators to make an easy fun way to shop the app store for children apps. The AppyMall is designed to make shopping for apps much easier by offering many different types of categories surrounding children's apps. The apps will be sectioned off by type such as speech and language, age, grade range, and more. The AppyMall is for typical developing children and special needs. Need a math app it will soon be easy to find in the AppyMall quickly and easily. Need a reading app same thing and the list goes on. This site will be always changing as new apps come in and prices change. The AppyMall will also show you sale apps so if your looking for some good deals this will be the place to go first. I really love the part that if you don't know how to spell a word you can type it in the AppyMall and it will still come up unlike the actual app store where you need to know the exact spelling and name of the app for it to come up. The AppyMall is also going to offer the ability to click:
"I like it", "I own it", and "I want it" so you can keep track of apps quickly and easily that you may have or want. When you click "I want it" the store will notify you of a sale on that app so you always know when an app you want has a price drop. The five main anchor stores that the store will first open with are: Preschool AppyStore, Elementary School AppyStore, Middle School AppyStore, Speech and Language AppyStore and Special Needs AppyStore. Theses stores are just the beginning and there is many different apps and categories within each of the anchor stores. Personally I can't wait for the AppyStore to open in August. I think this will redesign your app shopping experience 110%!!!! :)

Articulation Station Pro by Little Bee Speech is a fantastic app for teaching articulation. There is over 1,000 target words, tips for each sound, matching and flashcard activities, 1,300 unique sentences, and more. The different activities included are: Flashcard activities, Matching game, rotating sentences, unique sentences, level 1 stories, and level 2 stories. With each sound practiced you can choose initial, medial, and final sound. This app will keep track of your child's score within the app when you choose correct or incorrect. The app will read aloud to your child in a very clear voice. You also have the option of recording your child when working with this app. The app will track multiple children which makes it perfect for families with multiple children or in a classroom setting/therapy setting. When you save your child's score they will be saved in the app and you can email the results easily within the app.You can choose up to 6 names to track and record at a time which I'm sure therapist will love this option. The settings include: scoring buttons, scoring sounds, voice audio, and set passing at 90%. The pictures in the app are very clear and makes this app very easy for special needs children to know what the picture is. I would highly highly highly recommend this app :)

There is also a free version of this app to try the app out. You can purchase sounds separately as needed with the free version :)


My Autism Day

My Autism Day by Little App Helpers is a wonderful app to help track your child's behaviors, progress, therapy and more. This app has all your tracking needs for a child with autism all in one easy to use app. This app has: a daily log, activities, goals, health, caregivers, and charts. The daily log helps you keep track of notes for behaviors, eye contact, behaviors and more. The activities helps you log all activities and play throughout the day. The goals are any type of goal you may have set for your child. Health helps you track if your child's prescriptions and supplements. The caregivers area helps you keep track of visits and appointments and any notes you may have from them or their visit. The charts area takes all your info about goals, health, ect and makes them into an easy to read chart. I really like the layout of this app and it's ease of use. This app is an all in one app for keeping track of things you may need to bring to the doctors office. This app does track more then one child which is really helpful for a family like my own. I do wish it had some preloaded info in it for medications and therapy's but in a way it's good that it doesn't so you can be more exact for your child. The app comes with a lot of info right in it on how to use their app and certain things you should track. I would highly highly highly recommend this app :)

Nosy Crow apps

Nosy Crow makes fun and interactive stories. Their stories are enjoyable to read anytime night or day. My children really enjoyed listening and playing with each of them. Today I'm going to tell you a little about 4 out of 5 of their stories.

The Three Little Pigs- Nosy Crow animated storybook: We have all read some version of the Three Little Pigs at some point in our lives but this one is 3D. This story is very cute and puts a new twist on an old tale. There is many things to touch and do in the story to hold your child's interest through the whole story. Your child can even work on their oral motor with this story by blowing the houses down. I would highly highly highly suggest this version of the Three Little Pigs :)

Cinderella- Nosy Crow animated picture book: This is another familar tale that most of us have heard at some point but this story lets you into the story yourself. You get to help clean the kitchen, build the carriage, select music, see yourself in the mirror (ipad 2 or higher only), and soo much more. You can chose read to me, read by myself, or read and play with this story. So many things to touch and listen to that I highly highly highly recommend this story :)

Bizzy Bear on the Farm: This story is perfect for toddlers to preschooler age. You get to tag along with Bizzy the Bear as he does his chores on the farm. You can help Bizzy by picking apples, feeding pigs, driving the tractor, and more. This is a cute fun story that all my children enjoyed playing with. It is simple to follow along with and do the stuff Bizzy asks of you. I would highly highly suggest this app :)

Pip and Posy: Fun and Games: This app has soo much for your child to do. Pip and Posy are right there with your toddler to preschooler for painting, puzzles, spot the difference, matching, and more. Your child can even see themselves in the mirror if your ipad has a camera. This app is ment for younger children but I would find it useful for children that have fine motor problems as well as it's easy enough for them to navigate through. My 4 and 7yr old boys use this app often and think it's a lot of fun. The pictures are well done and I would highly highly recommend this app :)
