The iPad & the SLP in 2020 and Beyond: Interactive PDF Resource List of iOS apps, Boom Cards, Teachers Pay Teachers materials, Teletherapy Resources and Online Resources – organized by goal areas, themes and topics (updated 1-14-21)

 

The iPad and the SLP in 2020 and Beyond - a new free interactive resource from OMazing Kids

Happy Cyber Monday! We are all using technology now more than ever in 2020. There has been a significant increase in Speech Language Pathologists and parents asking for app recommendations in the midst of this pandemic since so many are doing distance learning and teletherapy.

 

So I spent the past 8 months creating this FREE resource to help fellow SLPs and parents. 

A big shift has taken place in the iOS App Store kids and therapeutic app market since I posted my original big app list on 12/31/16 (https://bit.ly/3js1CA7). Many of those apps are no longer available for purchase and some have totally disappeared. I chose to leave that post up as a time capsule of the apps that existed then plus it’s helpful to have the names for older apps when you want to find an app in your “Purchased” area in the App Store. 

This is a fresh resource list with items that were all verified as being available and links verified as working at the time they were added over the past 8 months.

 

An iPad is only as good as the apps that you load on it. Think of the iPad as being the toolbox & the apps within it as tools. Many high quality apps specifically designed by SLPs for SLPs allow you to do in-app data collection, look at data over time, e-mail reports, and swipe through stimulus cards rapidly which allows you to get in more reps. Plus many kids are highly motivated by anything presented on an iPad. Having most of the major robust AAC apps at my fingertips to try at any moment was life changing for many of my patients.

Don’t have an iPad? No worries…. there are tons of things besides apps included on this resource list: Boom Cards, Teachers Pay Teachers materials, online games, green screen resources, tips for screen mirroring, document cameras, etc… In the Articulation section I included info about Android versions of apps. If you are a pediatric SLP or a parent of a child with special needs, I promise you’ll find something on this list that you’ll love!  I provided services for kids, teens and young adults (birth – 21 years of age) for 28 years so I have a vast and varied collection of apps and other materials and resources targeting almost every goal and theme you can think of. 

This is a “vetted” list with a mix of paid and free items. With very rare exceptions, I only share info about apps and resources that I have actually downloaded and tried and only post about those that I see as being either helpful in therapy, classroom or to parents of kids with special needs. There are thousands of apps in the App Store and thousands of other resources so it can be difficult to find ones to best meet our needs as SLPs.

The interactive PDF is not intended to be printed due the number of pages (currently 253 pages), number of links and since it will be periodically updated. It will be most useful to save the PDF in the Books/iBooks app on your iPad and iPhone where you can tap on links to apps and resources and hyperlinks within the Table of Contents to jump to that section, zoom in and scroll. It should work in the same way on Google PDF Viewer for those wanting to view it on an Android tablet or phone. It can also be viewed and used in Adobe Acrobat or other PDF Reader software on a computer.

Other Important Info: None of the links in this document are “affiliate” links and nobody “paid” to have their apps, resources or products included. I am providing this as a FREE unbiased resource from OMazing Kids. That integrity is more important to me than any potential money I might have been able to make by selling this as a resource on Teachers Pay Teachers or on my blog. I may venture into creating Boom Cards and TPT materials in the future but at this point everything that I have created remains free on my blog.

 

Want to suggest an app or resource to be added to this list? The best way to reach me is via Facebook messaging over on my OMazing Kids page.

  • If it’s a free iOS app, please send the link from the USA App Store so I can try it out.
  • If it’s a paid iOS app and you are the app developer, please send the link from the USA App Store so I can look at the info before you send a promo code. I want to make sure that one of my iPads or iPhone is compatible in order to try it out.
  • If it’s another type of resource that’s free, please send the link so I can try it out.
  • If it’s another type of paid resource, please send the link so I can take a look at the info before sending me a free copy.

Found a broken link or an app or resources that is no longer available? I anticipate that there may be apps and resources that have disappeared over the 8 month timeframe that I worked on this document so please let me know if that happened or if you notice that any have disappeared in the future. The best way to reach me is via Facebook messaging over on my OMazing Kids page.

 

I plan on periodically updating the this list so it’s best to “bookmark” and share the link to this blog post since the link to the PDF will change when it’s updated. I will update the date on a revised PDF and will indicate the date it was updated in the blog post. You’ll then need to delete the old copy from the Books/iBooks app on your iPad and save the newest version.

Want to find out when I do new posts about high quality apps and resources that are are either free or a great deal that day and highlights on more expensive apps that are particularly helpful and well worth the price?

I invite you to join me on my OMazing Kids social media sites. I post the most frequently on my Facebook page and in the AppPeeps group. For particularly great finds, I cross post on Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest to help spread the word. Be sure to “like”, “follow” and “join” and adjust your notification settings. I can’t pay to promote posts since I don’t generate any revenue off of the sites.

Ignore any ads that you may see on my blog. It’s a free blog site so I don’t have any control over the ads nor do I profit from them. You can also subscribe to my blog to receive e-mail notifications when I do new blog posts. I don’t send out newsletters or sell contact info so no worries about getting spam. 

.

I hope you find this resource helpful in your work as an SLP or as a parent of a child with special needs. Working on compiling it was a labor of love and was something positive for me to focus on in the midst of the COVID-19 / coronavirus pandemic and other craziness of 2020. I’m SO incredibly grateful to be retired and have the time to help others through the sharing of resources, prayers, helping elderly relatives get groceries/supplies, etc… I have all my fellow SLPs in my prayers for God’s safety and provision. I also have all the families of kids with special needs in my prayers that God would give you the wisdom and peace needed to help you help your child/children during this incredibly stressful time 🙏🏼

222 Books for Kids Yoga – a Resource List from OMazing Kids Yoga (updated 7-7-12)

I just updated the resource list to add new books I have purchased since the original list was posted on 4/6/12 – (https://omazingkidsllc.com/2012/04/06/books-for-kids-yoga-a-resource-list-from-omazing-kids-yoga/). This is now a list of 222 kids picture books that would work well in a kids yoga class and includes the book title, author & themes . 

Excel document (you can sort, search & print – must have MS Excel to open): Books for Kids Yoga Resource List (from OMazing Kids Yoga) – updated 7-7-12 (Excel Version).

PDF version (you won’t be able to sort but will be able to search and print – included this for folks who don’t have Excel): Books for Kids Yoga Resource List (from OMazing Kids Yoga) – updated 7-7-12 (PDF Version).   Need help with “searching” for specific words in a PDF? Check this out:http://www.window.state.tx.us/specialrpt/search.html .

It does not include kids books specifically designed for yoga or mindfulness because the list was created to be a resource for folks like parents, teachers, childcare providers, therapists, etc….   I have reviewed several great kids books specifically designed for yoga &/or mindfulness, love them all and plan on making a separate list of those soon. In the meantime, you can find books I have reviewed by searching my blog: https://omazingkidsllc.com/category/books/.

Updated: Yoga for Kids and Teens in Oklahoma – Resource List

Click here for the UPDATED resource list (PDF): Yoga for Kids and Teens in Oklahoma – Resource List

I compiled this resource list of folks offering yoga classes/groups for kids & teens in Oklahoma based on what I could find online & through e-mail and Facebook correspondence. It is a work in progress so please let me know if you would like information added, removed or updated.  If I have overlooked someone who is doing yoga with kids and/or teens please let me know so I can get them added to the list.

Just in case you are wondering why I put together this resource list…..

1. We have kids & teens who benefit from yoga in my OMazing Kids Yoga groups at the JD McCarty Center in Norman, Oklahoma. Kids come to the center from all over the state and I have been looking for places to refer families to when their child discharges from the JD McCarty Center.

2. It will be nice to be able to network and collaborate with other folks doing yoga for kids & teens here in Oklahoma.

Thanks for all the OMazing things you each do for kids & teens in Oklahoma!
