PART 2 of 3 - Top Apps for older kids/teens/young adults working at primary level


We have been having a discussion on our Facebook Fan Page twice a day. Tony had a question that resulted in a large list of apps for teens working at a lower level. The following is the list of apps that were recommended by our readers, in no particular order.

Tony posted, "Hi, I'm setting up an iPad for my 19 year old son and I'm looking for some app suggestions. He has mild/severe intellectual disability and he works at around 4 to 7 year old level. Any ideas would be a big help."

This is Part Two of the list, Part One can be viewed here and Part Three can be viewed here.

ABA - Problem Solving - What Does Not Belong? by Innovative Mobile Apps

From iTunes:
"The "what does not belong apps" do the opposite of the basic Touch and Learn applications. Instead of asking kids to find "the circle" or the "red square" the "what does not belong apps" display 4 images and require the child to identify the one item that is different. The difference could be due to the color, name of the object, type of object or concept being presented."
