Jeremy Brown's App Recommendations for Students with Autism Part 1

I am an elementary special education teacher. I work with students in grades 3rd through 5th who have autism. My students and I are fortunate to have two iPads and several iPod Touches to use in our classroom. Outside of school, I work as a Family Trainer helping parents implement behavioral and educational programming for their children at home.
