5 App Review Resources

I like App Reviews from:
Smart Apps for Kids
Speech Language Neighborhood
Early Intervention Speech Therapy

Preschool Speech Source

 1. I personally have many of the apps reviewed on these 4 sites. I look at the cost of the app to determine if it's worth the value and if a FREE app has limited use, I delete it. Take advantage of limited time FREE apps. I have downloaded many FREE apps during this time.
2.  I always pair an iPad activity with a hands on activity.  Children learn by doing and and we need
to remember the importance of real time experiences.  Our experiences build on our knowledge base.
