Great Music Apps & AAC Language Goals
A- A+

We love music, we love apps, we love great language opportunities and with these apps we can combine all these loves.

These awesome music apps were  selected because they have great choice making and commenting opportunities. You can use no tech, low tech, or an extra high-tech device to make choices and comment while you play with the app.

Core words work great for choice making and commenting.  Whenever I play or sing, my kids love to say “stop that” or “don’t do that pleeeeease”. When they play, I love to use aided language input (ALI) to say “good”,  “more”, “again”, “love it” . We play the music “fast” and “slow”. We “find” our “favorite one”. We all like to say “let’s play with that one” or “let’s do it together”.  The possibilities are really endless (and that is one of the reasons we love core words).

These apps sound amazing and allow for aspects of music composition.

** A big THANK YOU to the app developers who at one time or another made these apps free or discounted on the iTunes store , which is when we purchased them. We probably got notification of the ‘app gone free or discounted’ through Appy Mall or Smart Apps for Kids. Under full disclosure, we were not given them free for this post or have we communicated in any special way with the developers.
