It features five sub-sections as follows:

This includes 72 applications for the iPhone and 13 applications for the iPad in 10 categories ranging from communication to emotional development and life skills.

Apps, which have become increasingly popular in recent years, can be used as assistive technology devices, organizational tools and teaching aids. They are used with Apple's iPhone, iPad or iPod devices.

Now parents can access a wide range of apps, such as Proloquo2Go (itunes.apple.com/us/app/proloquo2go/id308368164mt=8) for augmentative communication solutions.
