Best iPad app for autism
The Best Answer
Proloquo2Go is an app for autistic children who have difficulty speaking and is the best alternative for anyone who can't afford to buy an expensive AAC device.

I can confirm the Ipad works great for my autistic son. There are many apps that help with motor skills and reading/writing, but I think the Montessori apps such as this one worked the best.
The iPad has been such a blessing for our autistic son. We've been using the iPad successfully together as a learning tool and one of the apps he really likes is called First Words. There's a great variety of subjects, nice pictures, and easy navigation. I bought it after seeing this video:
The Grace iPad app was designed by Lisa Domican, mother of two autistic children. It's a simple app that helps autistic children build their communication skills by creating sentences from pictures.
I am thrilled with my experience with the First Then Visual Schedule app. It's a reasonably priced tool for managing schedules and hectic times like getting ready for school in the morning. I have used this successfully with my 6 year old, who has high functioning autism and definitely recommend it to anyone who needs a reliable, easy-to-use app to help with transitioning or communication.
iWriteWords is another good iPad app for autism. It's a handwriting and spelling app, where for each letter in a word, the app says the letter, and the goal is to trace it by following a connect the dots approach. When the entire word is finished, it displays the handwritten word on the screen.
