BridgingApps.org is a website that thrives to “bridge the gap between technology and people with disabilities.” Using the How to Search for Apps tab you can search by specific skills, read reviews by professionals and save your own searches with notes. The Getting Started tab allows you search based on your role as caregiver or professional. All the apps are rated, categorized and priced. Check out how this site may help take the confusion out of the term “There is an app for that.”
The audience is teachers, therapists and medical professionals and although the apps I reviewed were targeted towards children, the site is for anyone with a disability including adults/seniors. Registration is encouraged.
There is a LOT of useful information at this site. It’s best if time is taken to explore the site before trying to locate an app or a service. It’s particularly helpful to review the content in the sections, Getting Started, and How to Search for Apps before exploring the site in-depth.
BridgingApps is a program of Easter Seals Greater Houston that provides access to educational and therapeutic tools—anywhere, anytime—allowing parents, teachers, and therapists to effectively use mobile devices and apps to target and improve individual skill development to help children and adults with disabilities reach their highest levels of physical and cognitive development.
