Sped Apps

Caroline Musselwhite (, and quite a few other speech therapist have started a great wiki - Sped Apps 2.  The purpose of the wiki is listed right on the front page:

The founding members of this wiki consist of "old" therapists, with over 200 years of experience working with special populations and technology. We hope that people will use this site to make informed decisions before downloading. Our purpose in creating this wiki is to foster collaboration around how applications can be used in unique ways to support learning in home, school, and therapy settings. If you have used iPad/iPod applications with special populations, please consider joining and contributing to this wiki by adding information to the charts on the various pages (see navigation pane on the left). You can also contribute without joining by adding entries on the discussion tabs for each page.

I think the last sentence is the best part - Join and add entries!  If you click on the discussion link on the top

You can see and contribute ideas on how to use the apps.  These reviews are geared toward students with disabilities in mind and they have quite a few reviews done.  I can see them adding a lot more in the coming months!
