OT Corner: 10 OT Approved iPad Apps

While I strongly feel that active, hands on play is absolutely essential to development,  the iPad can be an awesome and motivating tool that we can use within our classrooms, therapy sessions or at home.  Today I am going to highlight some of my favorite iPad apps that I have used successfully over the years with students.  Some of the apps provide opportunities to practice certain fine motor, visual motor or visual perceptual skills.  Other apps can be used as a way to schedule and structure sessions, or as more of a reward that students can choose at the end of a session after other work is completed. The best part – many are free, and all are under $10 in the App Store!
