Special Education iPad Users: new Facebook page

Interest continues to build in the use of devices such as iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone, and their applications by people with disabilities. Communication applications are particularly prolific. It is becoming increasingly useful to select a number of 'clearing house' sites to keep track of what available. 

Here is a new Facebook page providing information on special education uses of the iPad - both software and hardware accessories: Special Education iPad Users.

We listed some others in the March 2011 issue of  Voice (our quarterly journal):

iPhone/iPod Apps for AAC - regularly updated annotated online listing of apps for augmentative and alternative communication, compiled by Jane Farrall at specialist Australian software supplier Spectronics, as a community service:

iPhone, iPad and iPod apps for special education - a comprehensive, categorised list of apps published in April 2010 by Eric Sailers, a speech and language pathologist working in special education in California. The list provides links and descriptions.

There's an app for that  - feature article from Voice, March 2011

And Down Syndrome Association of Queensland has published online the DSAQ guide to apps
