Like many others, I do love my iPad. As many other parents know, the iPad can be something a whole family can love. Maybe a little too much! I use my iPad with both my children at home and during my therapy sessions at work. There is a great website called TherapyApps411.com. This website is a great resource for therapists such as myself. They give excellent suggestions and reviews of apps and can also be useful for parents in finding specific apps that they can use to encourage language.
Since cooking and baking are such a common daily experience for my children, they were very specifically interested in these food apps that I am going to discuss. They loved that they can do some cooking and baking themselves! They are also great for parents because there is no mess! This should not replace having them help you in the kitchen but it can be used as a supplemental activity that can carryover what you have already made or might make in the future!
Also, please note that most of the apps that I enjoy and recommend aren’t solely for the iPad. Check each individual app for that information. For my uses, I talk about the iPad because that is what I use.
