My name is Brittany Ammons and, from July 2011 to January 2014, I volunteered with the non-profit organization Sensory Friendly Learning and served as the Corporation Secretary from September 2012 to January 2014. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or comments.
Sensory Friendly Learning Inc.:
From July 2011 to December 2012, Sensory Friendly Learning Inc. provided free, after-school tutoring to children with special needs. We tutored children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Dyslexia. We worked with the child’s teacher to know what subjects he or she needed to focus on and focus on that need by using worksheets and devices such as an iPad or a Tablet. This blog contains some of the apps that we used with the children we tutored.
Facing Autism Together Everyday:
Facing Autism Together Everyday (FATE) being in 2007 and was a group in Douglas, Georgia for families with children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, with a Autism Spectrum Disorder. FATE has been key to spreading autism awareness in Coffee County and providing support in a way that only others who have experience with autism can do. FATE meets every second Saturday of each month at the Coffee Regional Medical Center in Douglas. Anyone is welcome to attend these meetings. There is no cost of admission to the meetings or even to join FATE.
Apps 4 Education:
I created Apps 4 Education because I wanted to do what I had been doing on my Autism 4 Life blog but do it better. I had been making posts about different educational apps that we use with Sensory Friendly Learning Inc. I decided to make a site just for the apps so that I could better categorize them.
This site focuses on Apple devices as I am very familiar with them. My brother has an iPad, which I am constantly looking for apps for him on, and I have an iPod touch. I do not and have never owned an Android device. We did use a Tablet when we tutored after-school, but I am unfamiliar with how buying apps works on it. So, I’m sticking to Apple.
If you would like to see the app in the App Store, click the link at the end of the post that says “App Store.” These links are affiliate links, also called sponsored links. If any of these links do no function or go to the wrong app, please comment on the post or e-mail me at email@example.com. I am human, so I may make mistakes.
You are free to make a donation should you want to. Donations are done through PayPal. Money from any donations will be used to purchase domain names for my blogs. If Apps 4 Education had its own domain name, the web address would be http://www.apps4education.me or http://www.apps4education.org, instead of http://www.apps4edu.wordpress.com. You have to pay each year to keep a domain name, so it is not a one time purchase. As it’s own domain, I can move my blog to WordPress.org instead of WordPress.com, where it is now. On WordPress.org, I can better customize my blogs than I can here on WordPress.com.
