Portrait of adult woman watching as her son doing homework using his laptop and fast wireless internet. Copyspace. Isolated on white backgroundStudents with learning disabilities often have trouble with study skills like getting and staying organized— a crucial executive function skill —and remembering what needs to happen and when.My son, who has a severe language disorder and auditory processing disorder, finds apps either on his iphone or our home ipad very interactive and help him be more organised with school work and at home with schedules.I found this article on the National Center for Learning Disabilities e-news and thought
it was worth sharing as I would love to know what Apps do and don’t work for others.I know that every person has slightly different needs, but it’s worth taking the time to find out which apps work for your child.
