Educational iPad App & Website Recommendations for Children

It has taken me a lot longer than anticipated to get this post up.  Last week, I was out of town for the amazing Summer Institute training hosted by TASN’s Autism and Tertiary Behavior Supports Team

But as a result of my parenting sabbatical, my two year-old son has been attached at the hip to me this week!! Fittingly, my husband currently refers to our son as "Mommy's Velcro".  I haven’t been anywhere without him nearby. But I must admit I don’t mind, he'll grow up soon enough!  (Actually, he's is sitting on my lap "helping" me type this post!)

Recently, I gave an iPad presentation at the Pilot Conference in Manhattan, KS.  This week I want to share the iPad apps that the participants of the conference recommended after my presentation.  

(Please note this list is based on my interpretation of the written feedback I received.  Exact titles and authors have yet to be confirmed.)

Participants also shared with me a few favorite computer websites for kids.  As a parents, I am very excited about these because my 5 year-old son, EJ, is really into playing on the computer right now. Like many of you, I prefer that he plays more educationally based games. 

Website Recommendations with Educational Games for Children

For those of you who are reading this post but did not attend the Pilot Conference, you can view my list of favorite apps via my iPad App Technology Matrix.  It was a matrix that was created last April.  However, as you can imagine my staff and I have found many more excellent apps since then. Here's that list: "25 Ways to Use an iPad in a Preschool or Elementary Classroom - (Plus, the App Recommendations to Get Started Today!)"

If you have an app or website suggestion to share, please add it to the comments section of this blog.  I am always looking for new technology suggestions!! 

Until next time...Happy iPad, iPhone, and Computer Playing!!  (Now, I have a two year-old to pry off of me!)
