Now that things are back to normal in this castle & I can go back to slaying my workdays away, I thought it would be fun to reflect on a few apps that were their for my Princess & I in the past!
Many of these apps my Princess has outgrown now that she's 4, but a handful of them she still gets a kick out of to this day.
Set the stage for reading success with this delightfully interactive educational app. Kids will have a blast learning their ABC’s and building vocabulary with the adorable Endless monsters. Each word features an interactive puzzle game with talking letters and a short animation illustrating the definition. Before you know it, your child will be using words like gargantuan and cooperate!

kids! My Princess has been in speech therapy since she was 18 mo old and this was an app her speech pathologist whipped out one day during a therapy session after giving me the same warning, don't freak out because of the word autism lol. The app series just rocks. And they really do! Such simple apps that teach your kiddos vocabulary without music & lights etc. Sometimes simple and basic are better than the fancy apps with loads of distractions!
24 real world photos; it has been proven that children with Autism respond best to photos as opposed to illustrations and are very visual learners.
- 24 photos chosen based on established expressive language milestones are divided into three sub groups of eight. With 24 photos, over-stimulation is less likely which increases the child’s ability to grasp the concepts at an appropriate rate. - Labels of all photos with the option to turn off the label as some children with Autism may be more drawn to the written word. At the end of eight images there will be an option to try again, aiding in repetition and drill required for learning new words.
- SORTING colors (red, blue, orange, yellow, green, pink, purple, brown, black, white)
- COUNTING numbers (1-12)
- COMPARING quantities
- ARRANGING numbers
