There are hundreds of social skills apps! I narrowed it down to more comprehensive and in-depth apps that target a variety of social skills. Here are my favorites and ones most recommended when asking hundreds of educators!
This app contains 20+ social stories. You can create your own, share, receive, or print stories as well. You have the option to purchase social stories individually.
There are 5 different themed apps: Friends, School, Community, Home, Family. They contain functional stories depicting children behaving in various situations. At the end of the story select WH questions, yes/no questions, or text match language activities. Answers are automatically scored and the student receives immediate feedback!
Create visual schedules with this app! Make schedule, task, waiting, feeling, or coping boards. The app comes preloaded with 180 visuals with prerecorded audio. Upload your own pictures or videos and print!
