Our May Open House event in Houston featured an app list with summer favorites, all submitted by volunteers that included parents, therapists and teachers. Check out the BridgingApps Houston Open House May 2013 list for ideas to maintain those skills during the school break. Another popular list that was created by BridgingApps’ own Betsy Furler, is Betsy’s Fun Learning Apps List.
