TalkTime Pediatric Speech Academy is headed by the talented and experienced Tammy Wynstra-Basel. In addition to having seventeen years of experience working with the evaluation and treatment of communication disorders, Tammy is equipped with a BS in both Speech Pathology and Audiology.  As if that wasn’t impressive enough, she also earned her MS in Communication Disorders and Sciences and has developed the ALL app series!

ALL focuses on improving language and verbal skills in kids with autism, down syndrome, apraxia, and more.  This is a really great series of apps that has received a lot of positive feedback. They’re effective apps that really help your child work on and build their communication skills.

Note that these are not AAC apps; they are meant to teach and nurture the verbal and language abilities that kids do have.

Autism Language Learning Series II: Yes/No Questions Reviewed by API

Here’s an excerpt from the review:

Answering simple “yes” and “no” questions might not be so simple for autistic children. Because most tend to have language delays and a limited vocabulary, it’s a challenge for them to answer “yes” or “no” because they most likely do not fully understand or process what’s being asked.

TalkTime Pediatric Speech Academy has created, yet, another great education app for kids that help them answer “yes” or “no” questions using video, images, and audio.

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
