Looking for new apps to support you during your time at home?
These apps might be helpful for different issues such as data collection, visual schedules, social skills, and more. Behavior analysts, teachers, speech-language pathologists, or other team members may be of help customizing these for your child of any age.
We’ve handpicked the following free and low-cost apps. Although a few of these apps are available for only one type of device (Android or iPhone), most can be downloaded or purchased in both the App Store and Google Play.
