Lists of Speech Therapy Apps

I keep meaning to put together a nice, neat list of speech therapy apps, or just apps that are useful for developing speech and language skills.  It seems that I have postponed the task long enough that a few other wonderful SLPs and parents of children with special needs have created some lists for me.  In this instance, my procrastination has paid off.  I have added a new blog page where I will list links to the most useful app lists I can find.  Please let me know if you have any other great lists.  Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to compile these great resources!

I am planning to add lists of apps over time.  Here are a few of the resources I am placing on the apps page:

Apps for SLPs by GeekSLP.com

The SLP App List by Speech Techie

Autism Apps by Autism Speaks

iPad Apps for Autism by Squidalicious

If you have a great list, that you would like to share, please leave a comment or email me the link.

That’s all from me for today.  Until next time…

  1. Hi. My name is Jeremy. I'm an elementary special education teacher in Maryland. I work with elementary students who have autism. Outside of school I am a Family Trainer with our state's autism waiver. Here is my list of recommended apps: http://scr.bi/epFDSy

    Perhaps the best list I have found is Eric Sailers':

  9. Hi, I have a 16 month old son who is not speaking at all yet. He loves playing on the iPad but I have trouble findings apps that are age appropriate for him that might encourage his speech development. He has a history of autism on both sides of his family so it does worry me abit that he may be autistic (not that I would love him any less. My 6 year old sister is autistic and I love how unique and bright she is). I'm just wondering if anyone might know of some good apps that aren't too age-advanced for him that would encourage him to start speaking. So far I've got him to say mamma once. Lol. Thanks :)
