15 Apps geared towards learning! December 16 2014, 0 Comments

As an speech-language pathologist and educator, Parents are always asking me how they can help their children continue learning at home. I often suggest ways to incorporate speech and language skills into daily routines, great books to read before bed and new toys to add to holiday wish lists. While parents appreciate all these suggestions, one question always dangles on... "What are some good apps I can download?". While I'm not a huge "screen" fan for learning purposes and don't often use apps during therapy sessions, I appreciate the function of "screen time" and an iPad in a household. That being said, I would always rather promote something educational and fun, and there is no shortage of apps geared towards learning. Here are a few of my favorites:

3. Speech with Milo Sequencing
