When our son was first diagnosed with autism, everyone recommended downloading apps. The problem was, I had no idea where to start and some of the apps I found were so expensive I could not justify purchasing them on our tiny family budget that was already stretched thin by daily therapies and appointments. I have also learned that while it is important to balance screen time with outdoor and active play time, technology can be a beneficial tool for helping our son calm himself and escape from the noise of the world around him. After more than a year of speaking with parents, therapists, and specialists, today, I am sharing our top three favorite apps! These apps are all user-friendly, affordable, and visual-based. They have been wonderful for our child, and I hope they will be for yours, too!
