Are You Following the App of the Month?
Ok so last week I know I was on a soapbox about smart technology possibly changing infant and child development milestones as we know it. On the flip side we know technology is here to stay and we all have certainly seen some of the benefits especially for our kiddos along the autism spectrum and/or those with cognitive/motor impairments. So, just making sure you are following Angelia Wood and her App of the Month review. She does a great job screening apps that may be helpful for OT goals and objectives for all ranges of clients that we serve. I find it a helpful resource as it's hard to keep up with the steady influx of apps being released. This week I wanted to add one that I came across as well. Some of you more savvy app users may be familiar with this one already but it was new to me! It is called MadPad and is wonderful way to work on auditory and/or visual discrimination and sequencing and looks like just plain fun! As we discussed last week, let's remember to incorporate other sensory tools with vestibular, tactile and proprioceptive input along with technology as part of an overall treatment plan. Do you have a favorite app to share for your school or clinic practice?
