As someone who runs a tech focused website, it’s no surprise that I love handy apps that are great for kids, parents, and families. And as a former teacher and mom who knows many parents of children with learning disabilities (LD), it’s no surprise that I love learning about tools that can help LD families.
Enter, the National Center for Learning Disabilities. NCLD has tested over 100 apps for different types of learning and attention issues. Their site is a treasure trove of roundups that provide wonderful apps that help minimize or remove the stuff that can be barriers to fun for an LD child. Apps can serve as tools that can help you narrow down which apps can aid in study skills like getting and staying organized, tech support for social skills like reading or communicating nonverbal signals, mobile apps to help make writing less tedious and more fun. NCLD also has fantastic suggestions of apps that can aid students with dyslexia and dyscalculia.
Even though tit’s always important to try apps to find ones that are the best fit for your children, NCLD’s roundups provide extensive lists of helpful apps that serve as a great place to start.
