Good Free Apps of the Day: Autism Series Apps and more from WebTeam go FREE! Save over $70!

Wow, this deal is incredible! I can't even link all of the apps individually, or I'd never be able to get this post done, there are so many. But a number of these apps haven't been free in a long time (almost 2 years!) making this a deal to move on quickly. I know it's Thanksgiving in the United States, but while that big meal is digesting, download these apps and share this post with an interested friend.

Others discuss visual supports, or even thinking about independent living
