If you have read my blog, by now you know I have a small obsession with my iPad. Okay, okay, maybe a BIG obsession!  Since my husband came home with it last year, I have been using it for just about everything, including my music therapy session.  So, in the spirit of the holidays, I’m going to share 12 of my favorite apps/iPad resources to the tune of the 12 days of Christmas!  Hop on your sleigh and bring on the jolly cause here we go!

♫On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, the best resource for special needs apps.♫

squidalicious.com is a blog written by Shannon Des Roches Rosa, a mom with an amazing 11 year old boy named Leo. Leo has Autism.  Shannon writes that the iPad has changed Leo’s and her world forever.  Not only does she talk about how the iPad has impacted them, but she shares review after review of apps that have helped Leo learn and grow.  In fact, she has reviewed so many apps that she decided to compile a spreadsheet of all these great apps and share the link on her site for FREE!  Shannon lists 100+ apps and 30+ app resources for fundraising, research, education and therapy.  Can I get a WOOT for Shannon!? =)  I hope you will get a chance to check out the spreadsheet and her blog, even if you don’t have an iPad!  Her insight is honest and her resources have been my go to for all things iPad.
