Apps for Children with Special Needs (www. a4cwsn.com) makes it easier to know which apps are worth your money-and your child's attention.Need help deciding which apps are worthwhile for your family? Here it is... (Discounted iPads, too.)

 

Once the first app geared at children with special needs hit the iTunes App Store, a wave of them followed, and the influx continues. How are you to know which ones are worthwhile and which ones are a bunch of phooey? We sure don't have time to wade through and test them all, so we know you don't. Enter the independent, thorough, easy-to-follow, and celebratory site Apps for Children with Special Needs. They are "committed to helping the families and careers of children with special needs and the wider community of educators and therapists who support them by producing videos that demonstrate how products designed to educate children and build their life skills really work from a user perspective." They make it easier to know which apps are worth your money-and your child's attention

Individuals who fan the organization's Facebook page and raise money to support their efforts can also qualify to purchase a highly-discounted iPad2. To be eligible you must be involved with children with special needs, whether a parent, school, or professional. Visit www.a4cwsn.com/ipad2-4u for full details and the application form.
