Here are a few apps for the iPad that will get you started. Most of these listed are for younger children through elementary school. These particular apps have worked well for children with Down syndrome.
If you have a favorite (or many favorites) app that your child or adult with DS has benefited from, please email Nikki. We’d love to let other parents know what has worked and what hasn’t.
