The iPhone and the iPad have some differences here so it is important that you get the tools that best fits your needs. Apple provides a section just on accessibility option worth exploring but also check out the details of many of those built-in accessibility options in the iOS Technology. Just to name a few: Guided Access • VoiceOver • VoiceOver with Zoom • Zoom • VoiceOver with Maps • Text Completion • Siri • Siri’s ability to launch apps • White-on-Black • Hands Free • Alternate alerts • Custom vibration patterns for alerts • FaceTime over 3G (for signing) • New Made for iPhone hearing aids • Word highlights in speak selection

    • 13. Autism and other SEN • • • • • • Apps for Autism - Apps for ASD iPod Touch Project is designed for children with Autism, broken down into categories, including quick and easy description and cost for each app makes it easy to find what you may be looking for. Apps for Children with Special Needs (A4cwsn) is dedicated to serving children with special needs and the associated communities who work with them. Not only do they provide listings of recommended apps, by categories with descriptions, but A4cwsn has created videos to demonstrate how APPS that have been designed for children with special needs really work. Apps Designed with Disability in Mind provides a listing divided up by category. Worth exploring. Apps for Education by Compiled by Carolann Cormier, MS, CCC-SLP, ATP is kept up-dated and broken down into categories. This is one of my favorite listings. Bookmark this one and you are pretty set. Apps for Learning Social Skills - as this site states, "One of the three core symptoms for an autism spectrum disorder is social impairment. People on the autism spectrum learn by association rather than by observation. An iTunes app can be used as a teaching tool for the purpose of making associative connections (visual clues) by pictures or stories showing what social skills are supposed to look like so that the person with an autism spectrum disorder can learn (by visual association) and model (by imitation) these social skills in the context of real life social scenarios." This is an extensive listing of apps for developing social skills- worth exploring! Snapps4Kids - http://bridgingapps.org/snapps4kids-has-become-bridgingapps/

    • 26. iEvalaute • Jeanette Van Houten developed iEvaluate Apps for Special Needs which is a detailed rubric specific for selecting apps for students with special needs.
    • 27. Apps for VI iDevices are becoming increasingly accessible to blind and visually impaired users through screenaccess technology (VoiceOver) and a magnification program (Zoom) built into the iOS operating system and a growing number of accessible apps. I explored and found, what I feel to be, a couple of great resources for apps for the Visually Impaired: Apps for the Blind and Visually Impaired - highlights some of the most innovative apps available. • Gradients of Sight has provided a listing and review of each. • Indiana AT Act has a nice listing of low vision apps. • Join Me provides a a quick, easy way for instant screen sharing allowing a student the ability to see what is on the whiteboard by manipulating and enlarging the screen as needed on their iPad. (For more information, see iPads and Visually Impaired Students.) • Magnification and Vision Support listing by Spectronics is also a good guide. • Spectronics has a listing of apps for people who have low vision, and teachers of students who have a vision impairment. • Eric Jerman has provided a nice document to support students with visual impairments. • Apps for the Visually Impaired highlights some of the most innovative and entertaining apps available to the vision impaired. • Not assistive technology but may be worth exploring is: Apps that can aid in Visual Skills • Voice Dream Reader app provides text-to-speech that lets you listen to any articles, blog posts, reports, papers, and books. It reads the text using the best available text-to-speech technology. You can add it to your Bookshare account easily. VDR allows for many color options, the Text-ToSpeech can be set for wpm, and I think you will like the reading screen feature. • For more apps for Visually Impaired check out: appadvice.com/applists/show/apps-for-thevisually-impaired
    • 28. Apps for HI • • • • • • • Apps for Deaf and Hard of Hearing: To better facilitate communication and make it possible to place and receive audio and/or video calls, the iPhone has provided extra support. Many apps are available for signing programs. There are not a lot of listings for apps specifically for this population other than the signing programs. Here are the few that I felt were worth mentioning: Accessibility Features for DHH users ATLA - concentrating mostly on iPhones but many of the apps mentioned can also be used on the iPad. iHelp for Special Needs has provided a listing of their top recommended sign language apps. IP-Relay: - enables people with hearing challenges to use an iPhone to quickly and easily call people who are hearing. Like an instant message, you type your side conversation. A certified operator receives it and voices everything you type to the hearing person. When the hearing person responds, the operator types their words. You watch the entire conversation live, right on your iPhone. Sign Language - There are literally dozens and dozens of Sign Language Translators, Dictionaries and Tutorials for learning to Sign.Explore the various ones to choose the one that best suits your needs and learning style. I like iSign. SpeakIt - Text to Speech - with this app the user can type their message and then have the app speak it for them. Great possibilities with those who struggle with speech. TapTap - is designed specifically to help bridge the gap to the audio world. Loud noises trigger TapTap to notify you with vibration and a flashing screen. Alone at night in your quiet home? Turn TapTap's sensitivity all the way up and it will respond to the slightest sounds. • For more, visit Apps for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
