Introduce AAC more effectively! Here are 3 tips to help you do just that: No. 1 - When you are using AAC apps on an iPad, iPod, or iPhone, always utilize Guided Access.

Today I want to share one of my favorite apps to use with
preschoolers who have receptive and/or expressive language delays. It's called
''Monkey Preschool Lunchbox,'' and is a mere $0.99 to download onto your device.

Thank you to everyone who has been writing in over these
past few weeks regarding the iPad apps and the many ways that the iPad can be

representative from our county paid me a welcomed visit, bringing with her the
much anticipated iPad! Very exciting!
When we met, she walked me through several of the
applications that were previously downloaded onto the device. I quickly fell in
love with a select few. I also learned ...

more time with their families and friends. Everyone has areas of their lives

with preschoolers and many of you have written in with wonderful ideas,
suggestions and your own personal preferences for various apps
