New Fav Apps!

Marshall Fenig, CCC-SLP shared some exceptionally fun iPad apps at the November Foothill Autism Alliance meeting. Use these in interaction and in speech and language therapy.  Not AAC, per se, but so motivating that communication, in whatever mode, is bound to ensue!

Toca Hair Salon - by Toca Boca
Worth all 199 pennies! ($1.99)
Cut, brush, grow, blow, buzz, and color the hair of 6 clients and enjoy their reactions as well as the amazing results!

Talking Tom Cat - by Outfit7
Repeats everything you say with a funny voice. Incredibly useful for prompting intentional vocalization in nonverbal persons. Encourages vocal play and practice.

Make a Martian - by 3DAL LLC
Stimulate language working together to select the style of your body, eyes, ears, arms, color, etc.

Play on!
