March 2011 Newsletter

Februaryhas been quite a month for! I am posting the March Newsletter a few days early.

  • We upgraded to a new server. We already out grew our first hosting system and have now moved to a bigger server. Some of you may have noticed a few hiccups. We think we have most everything sorted out. If you are having any issues or notice anything unusual let me know.
  • StartingFebruarywe had about 250 apps identified to be added to the website. We created a new layout style and template system to make the process mucheasier.
  • We are adding two major lists of apps:
    • A Spectrum of Apps for Students on the Autism Spectrum from OCALI – Ohio Department of Education
    • iPhone, iPad and iPod touch Apps for (Special) Education from the National Association for Child Development.
  • We are hard at work on a more expanded review system. You may have noticed 2 main categories of apps:
    • Assistive
    • Independent
    • More to come.

Here is what’s new:

  • New Links Added: Please Visit their sites.
  • Special Needs Library Helping parents of special needs children locateappropriateresources
  • I will be adding NACD and OCALI when we post up their lists.
  • Applications list now have a new table format and as we add apps we are going back and linking them into the tables to make it easier to jump from a list to the app review directly.
