iPad Apps For Speech Therapy

Today is Tech Tuesday (I apologize for completely missing last week) and I thought I would talk about our iPad again. Do you have an iPad or other mobile device? Do you use it with your children? Yesterday I spoke about needing to help Malachi with his speech in order to help him learn to read. We have an iPad and I knew that there must be resources we could use for speech therapy on there. Here are some of the Apps that we already have that could be used to help with speech therapy: Drawing Pad ($1.99) Preschool Island ($0.99) Stickers! …

Tech Tuesday

Weekly Wrap Up

Spring might be officially here. If that were true, there would be many little people around here doing a happy dance. The weather has been beautiful, so we  got outside and played some ball and picked some flowers while the OT worked with Elisha last Friday. Another nice day and we were able to visit the park. Elisha complained about bark mulch in his holey sandals. Hosanna fell off the climbing bars and banged her head, but she was back in the game quickly (it was minor, thankfully).  Zion stepped in poop with his bright red rubber boots.   On …

My mama has been asking questions about our iPad since we bought it. The kids have showed her how to use it and she has been quite intrigued by it.
