PrAACtical Alert: AAC App News
NOTE: Scroll down for the latest update on AAC app discounts and other sales.
Many of you know the work of Pennsylvania-based SLP Lauren Enders, whose contributions here and on Pinterest, Facebook, and other social media have been invaluable in our clinical and educational work. Lauren does a terrific job of identifying AAC, AT, and related resources and goes the extra mile in sharing them with others. Today, we feature a graphic that she developed to alert us of AAC apps that are discounted in support of Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month in the US app store. The discounts may be available in other areas as well.
The graphic is not interactive so if you wish to purchase an app, you’ll need to visit the iTunes App Store and search for the app you’re interested in or visit the company’s website. OR you can scroll down to the bottom and click on the links that Lauren provided.
To get a downloadable copy of the image, click here or on the image below.
We’ll do our best to update this with additional news about discounted apps. If you know of any others we should add, please comment below or reach out to us with that information.
