Appy Thanksgiving!

If we look hard enough, I believe it is easy to find things we are grateful for. My gratitude goes to individuals like you who visit, comment and share on this blog and also guest bloggers and colleagues who share their expertise. I am also grateful for ubiquitous devices and apps that provide opportunities for individuals with special needs additional tools that can increase independence and integration into mainstream activities to support their occupation. Mobile devices are not a panacea, but they do provide many new opportunities and tools for OT’s or Teacher’s mTool Kit. So here is a Thanksgiving greeting to all of you from OT’s with Apps…

Today an “appy thanks” also goes to Duck Duck Moose who recently created a new, free app that allows you to customize pictures that talk. This might be best suited to speech and language pathologists, parents and teachers for short video creations more than OT’s but it is easy and pretty fun!

ChatterPix Kids iconChatterPix Kids app (iPod Touch and iPad) provides simple tools using pictures, recording, stamps, text and boarders to create a video message. ChatterPix apps could provide a method of easily creating a greeting card, message, basic direction or reminder, a speech sample/data or… just for fun! The production (video) can be saved in your Photo Album, shared via email, AirDrop or as the video above, uploaded to a YouTube account to create your own public or private video!

For more information about the free ChatterPix Kids apps check out Duck Duck Moose’s video or visit iTunes to down load the app.

Appy Thanksgiving! Watch for more posts in the next few days on the Black Friday weekend app sales!
