Are you impressed with—but overwhelmed by—the number of apps designed to help kids on the autism spectrum? Do you want to narrow your search for the perfect app for a particular person?
The Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) website features a helpful app wheel, divided into Common Learning Characteristics categories such as Social Skills, Need for Sameness or Routine, Sensory Sensitivity, Difficulty With Traditional Learning Methods, Behavior, and Communication.
These characteristics are further divided into Common Learning Traits such as Difficulty Generalizing, Difficulty With Auditory Processing, and Limited Use of Language. From there, apps are divided into categories such as Organization Apps, Language Development Apps, and Eye Contact Apps.
