  1. This is a wonderful list, thanks! I would like to also suggest you review and add “AAC Autism myVoice Communicator” for android. It’s inexpensive (less than $3) and far better in simplistic layout and design than other AAC’s. My son picked it up right away and loves it. It’s customizable and it’s all included in the original cost. Works great! I think more people should be aware of this app! I have it on my Droid phone from Google Play. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=apphouse.software.autismspeaks&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDEsImFwcGhvdXNlLnNvZnR3YXJlLmF1dGlzbXNwZWFrcyJd

    And, my son also uses it on his Kindle Fire. It’s available on the Amazon appstore also. http://www.amazon.com/RoessingDev-Autism-myVoice/dp/B00BJXO8SC/ref=sr_1_6?s=mobile-apps&ie=UTF8&qid=1372141808&sr=1-6&keywords=aac

    Will you be including reviews for apps from Amazon for Kindle Fire? That would be great! I know many special needs families such as mine are turning to the Kindle Fire as the less expensive tablet alternative to the iPad.

    • Hi Mark! Thanks for the suggestion! I am always looking for more Android-based apps, so I will check that out.
      I haven’t focused on Kindle/Nook reviews, mainly because I do not own any of these devices. However, I do recognize that more people are beginning to purchase them for therapy/education-related purposes, so I will try to be more aware of what is available for them. In addition, I’d recommend you check out another site I’m involved in, http://www.yappguru.com. The site is an aggregate online community that incorporates reviews from a variety of review sites like this one. It also has a large directory of therapy/education-related apps. So you can go on and search the directory by keyword, device (e.g. Kindle specifically), skill targeted, etc. Many of the apps in this directory have snapshot reviews that link back to original reviews from a number of reputable blogs. It is still in public beta, so we are still building up a comprehensive app base. However, it already has plenty of Android/Kindle-based apps for you to peruse.
      Hope this helps!
