.

Check out OMazing Kids’ favorite new iOS apps released in 2015. It’s a list of over 50 apps…. yes I know that’s a lot but I use a huge variety of apps in my work as a pediatric SLP and kids yoga teacher serving kids with a wide range of special needs, ages birth to 21 years. It was fun to look back through the hundreds of apps released this year to create this list. It was a particularly good year for new social skills apps. Feel free to contact me via Facebook Messaging on my OMazing Kids page if you have questions about any of the apps on the list. I have only included apps that I have and have used extensively (listed in alphabetical order, prices not included since they change rapidly with no notice):

Feel free to “like” my OMazing Kids Facebook page & “join” my AppPeeps Facebook group. I post frequently about apps that are free or are a great deal and also frequently receive app promo codes from developers for giveaways.

Apps are typically only free for a few hours and codes always go quickly in giveaways so be sure to stop by my page frequently. See this post for info about how to see all the posts: https://omazingkidsllc.com/2015/12/09/tip-how-to-get-all-the-facebook-posts-from-omazing-kids-and-other-pages/.

I am not paid to do any reviews or giveaways, only post about apps that I have actually downloaded to try out and have over 25 years experience as a pediatric SLP…. the reason I say this is to assure you of my honest / unbiased thoughts on apps. When I find glitches or concerns, I contact app developers to provide suggestions for improvements. I only post about iOS apps since I don’t own any Android devices.
.
Looking forward to seeing what exciting new apps will be released in 2016!
