Free Apps For Autism (free special needs Android kids apps)


Today's Super Sunday Free List is not from a single developer but is a mish-mash of apps from a range of developers, all with the focus on autism. They have not been included in our Fully Free App Friday posts because they have in-app purchases. The quote in the title image is a reminder that although these apps have been developed specifically for autism, each child is different and not all of these apps will be useful for all children with autism. That is why it is so great that they are free. You can download and get a taste of what the app is about before committing to purchase. Enjoy!

For children or Adults who are non verbal, Autistic or who otherwise struggle to communicate. A fully customisable communication app for anyone who has difficulty communicating non verbally. This app leads to a more structured way of forming a sentence, so each word suggests what the next word would be. In this app every image can changed. You can select the image from your gallery, downloads or photograph an existing image or item. So you can make it match existing symbols the child is used to using and photographs of the actual people or item the child knows. The size of the list is also limited to eight icons to a page to make it nice and easy to see all the options.

AutismXpress
StudioEmotion is happy to announce the creation of the first Autism Android Application "AutismXpress", designed to encourage people with autism to recognize and express their emotions through its fun and easy to use interface. Autism is a lifelong disability that affects the way a person communicates and relates to other people and the world around them. Those affected typically display major impairments in three areas: social interaction, communication and behavior (restricted interests and repetitive behaviors). Part of the reason for creating AutismXpress is that people with autism have trouble interpreting emotions and understanding what different facial expressions may represent.
