    Well Done speechymusings. I hope this type of information will help some of the rural SLPs who’s administration refuse to allow IPADs into the schools. I am fortunate to have full support for integrating technology and I am thankful. I use many of the apps you’ve highlighted and I agree with the necessity to organize into folders. It has been an interesting long term project to gather and learn apps that will support curriculum and support student access to education via their IEPs.

    • Thank you for your comment. I definitely agree! It’s great your administration is supportive of technology because there are so many great apps out there! And yes… it is really a long term project once you get an iPad to continue to find new apps and learn them enough to use in therapy!

    Do you have a list of all the apps sorted by folder? I’m just starting out and need some guidance!!

  5. Mysti,

    You’re lucky to have found this blog early in you iPad experience! It’s awesome! If you are looking more categorized lists of apps by targeted skill area, you can take a look at my Pinterest site. It is massive and can be overwhelming, but may help you get started.

    Thanks for sharing these great apps!!!

  12. Sara S. says:

    I can’t find any of these apps in the app store. Am I missing something? Thanks…

    • Hmm I’m really not sure. Some of the names may be different, but I did go through most and make sure they matched up. These apps are probably only for for Apple devices and not Android. Other than that… maybe try Google-ing them first and downloading them that way? Good luck! Sorry about the confusion. I wish I could help more!

    Thanks a bunch for these free apps. I work at a public school in the Chicago area and it’s such a process trying to get the district to purchase apps. Can’t wait to use these with my kiddos.

  14. Yocheved Swertloff says:

    These apps look great! Are there similar apps that can be used for google tablets?

    Wow, this is such a huge list! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this out; it’ll be an enormous help when I begin grad school… and some I can use for fun in my own time, like MadLibs πŸ˜‰ A variety of apps will be great tools to use in therapy!

  22. Kitty Nelson says:

    Awesome apps that i’ve never heard of! Playhome Lite is another free one. With the purchase of some articulation apps, I have been super successful with getting out of the therapy room and working with my artic kids in the classroom & hallways! They are meeting their goals soo quickly.

  23. Patty says:

    do you have apps or know of apps that can be downloaded to a lap top? we have a tablet, but the apps are all for ipads and our tablet is not an ipad. My Mom had a stroke and is seeing a speech therapist that suggested she find a free app to help with her aphasia.
