Social Skills and Autism Spectrum Disorders App List

6 months. 6 months to the day and I have finally completed this list. When I first took on this app project, I did not know what I was getting myself into. It was a lot of work, but the benefits have outweighed the amount of time it has taken me to research applications. So now, I present to you (following the break) my largest application list to date; the Social Skills and Autism Spectrum Disorder Related App List!

Social Skills and Autism Spectrum Disorders app list icon

The Social Skills and Autism Spectrum Disorders application list for the iPod, iPad, Android, and Nook is about 82 pages in PDF format with categories including:

  • Social Skills
  • Life Skills
  • Social Stories
  • Conversation Maintenance
  • Conversation Starters
  • Idioms/Figurative Language
  • Non-verbal Communication
  • Eye Contact
  • Social Smile
  • Emotions
  • Visual Schedules
  • Choice Boards
  • Visual Timers
  • Turn Taking Timers
  • Sensory/Calming
  • Dietary/Gluten-Free Food
  • Autism Information

These applications are not intended to replace therapy with a speech-language pathologist and should be used under the direction of a qualified therapist. Consonantly Speaking did not receive any compensation for creating this list. For more disclaimer information, read the disclaimer on the app list or my website.

I hope this list helps you as much as it has helped me in my therapy. Being able to recognize what applications are out there and choose the best ones for your children is important, especially when trying to find the best therapy tool for your money. This document will be updated when I have the time in the future.

This is not the last of my application lists! More will be coming out over the summer including - Receptive Language apps, Expressive Language apps, AAC apps, ASL apps, and RtI/Reading apps.

Feel free to download and use this resource. Feel free to pass on the link to my website. You do not have permission to alter my document, claim it as your own, or sell it for profit.

I have worked for 6 months on this list in my spare time after school, so if you feel that it has been helpful, there is a PayPal button on the right hand side of the page or at the bottom of the post if you would like to donate a dollar or two. It would really mean a lot to me and help with the upkeep of this website.

I hope that this document is helpful to you! I have uploaded it in PDF format at the end of this post. To save the document to your computer, you can click on the link at the end of the post and it should bring up a window asking you where you want to save it to (or it may just open the file and you will have to click the "save" button in Adobe). You must have Adobe Reader or Google Chrome to view this document.

Feel free to comment with any other applications that I missed or comment as to whether or not this will help you choose appropriate applications for speech-language therapy! If you are wondering why an AAC application, ABA application, or DTT application is not on this list, it is because they are being added to other lists to come out in the future.

Ask yourself questions about the lawyers you’ve met. Was their office well laid out and organized? Ask whether they appeared professional demeanors and presentations. Do they respond to phone calls or emails quickly? Do they maintain or constantly reschedule?

thanks for sharing this resource.

I found you through Gabrielle. Thank you for the time you spent on this awesome list of apps! And thanks for sharing.

Great list. If you could get a grant to help you do this, it would be wonderful to rate them on the level of empirical research on whether or not they help. The VisPlayer mentions some research, but looks like it is for the general approach only. The app itself has not been studied.

Thanks for the time and effort that you put into this list.

You basically have two choices if you want to lose weight. You can change how you eat or increase your activity or exercise. The bottom line to the waistline is always going to be calories in versus calories burned. For most of us the idea of having to commit to an exercise program is difficult but it's the only option if you want to lose weight and get in shape.

If all those who truly wish to come together do so at a specific point that forms a nucleus, and it draws people from other areas into it. This leaves the other areas dividing themselves into like-minded individuals.

A theft lawyer is specialized in theft cases and has the difficult task of defending clients who have been convicted of theft. Anyway, it would be unjust to say that the theft layers agree with these severe crimes. They are hired to defend their clients' legal rights, and not to encourage such a behavior.

This is incredible research and it is wonderful you have simplified such resources for people with limited time. May I please share this information on our Community Forum with a link to your site. I believe such app assistance is vital in this technologial era to assist communication and learning for those with Autism and for those to further develop Social Skills

Incredible!! Well done !! That is really appreciable work. We must encourage these talented people for using their skills and abilities for the welfare of the children suffering from autism. These young, kind and talented people can bring a positive change to the world.
