App Listing – Maximize Your Touch App List

Paula Walser is a Speech Pathologist and AT expert – now CESA 6 Instructional Technology Specialist and national speaker from Wisconsin. With years of expertise in special education and instructional technology she is always on top of technology. I ran across her January 2012 Apps for Education listing which includes many categories suited to special education and OT. Her apps list provides categories of:

  • Social interaction
  • Independent Living Skills
  • Writing, Art/Fine Motor
  • Reading
  • Assistive Technology
  • Cause/Effect
  • Teacher Utilities
  • Games
  • Organization
  • And more are included in her app list.

Yes, there are many lists available, however my experience has been she always provides outstanding materials and instruction and this list is extensive and current.

Her PB Wiki provides other app and technology resources that may be helpful if you work with students and can be found at:

Hopefully you will find more for your OT iTool Kit!
