There a loads of autism related apps floating around iTunes. It’s actually fairly overwhelming to even keep track of which are the good ones and which are worth downloading. And a lot of these apps are pretty expensive. You better believe I am going to think long and hard before putting down $9.99 for a new square on my iPad screen. Many of communication apps are can be up to several hundred dollars. If it’s awesome and it works – it is definitely worth it. But so often we need to test things out with our kiddos. Especially our guys who are nonverbal, we need to play around and see how our kids respond to new technology and new activities.
This AAC app is great because it won’t cost you a penny. It’s called Tom Taps. It’s straightforward and basic. It will give you the opportunity to see how your student responds to an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) app. It’d be great for a parent’s iPhone, school iPad, or out and about in the community.
