Sight Words Ninja: Just like Fruit Ninja, but with Sight Words. Totally worth the few dollars it costs!

Touch & Learn: There are a bunch of apps from this creator and I love them all. They are very customizable, so you can target just the skills that your student needs to work on.

The Math Learning Center Apps: These apps are a great way to incorporate technology into your math lessons, and they are free!

Next Dollar Up: This app isn't free, but it's a great extension if you have students who are learning the Next Dollar method.

Letter Quiz: Include letter tracing, letter ID and letter matching. And it's fun!

CoughDrop: This AAC app is free for professionals and super easy to use!

Sounding BoardThis free AAC app from Attainment comes with several pre-made boards and you can create your own. 

Snaptype: This is a super easy way to make accommodations. Snap a picture of a worksheet, and students can type their answers!

MyScript Calcualtor: This is perfect for your students who struggle to hit small buttons. Students just write the math problem, and this app reads their handwriting and solves the equation. What a fun way to check your work!


Puppet Pals: Puppet Pals is a fun way to create social stories. It’s quick & easy and my students love it!

My StoryMyStory is an app I have used for social skills and for academics. You can create your own book, add pictures, text, and audio. So many possibilities!

Snapguide: Snapguide is an amazing way to create step by step video/picture modeling guides for students. It’s free and amazing!

Tally 2: Tally 2 is a great app to record frequency. It uses gestures, so you don't even have to be staring at your device to record an instance. #anythingtomakeiteasier

Interview AssistantDo you hire your own paras? I use Interview Assistant to keep track of my interview questions and interviewee responses.  You can even record audio of the actual interview and rate the interview at the end, for your own reference later on.

EvernoteEvernote helps keep my brain organized at home and at work. Its so easy to use and I love having it right on my phone so I can use it anywhere. I create a “note” for each of my students where I keep a continuous to do list. And it’s free!
