looking for assistive tech apps

jimmysmomjimmysmom Member Posts: 1 Listener
My son, Jimmy, is almost 25 yrs old. He's non-verbal and requires high levels of care. I'm looking for apps he can use on his iPad to communicate and control his Apple TV (Apple TV remote app doesn't show what movies are available). Also looking for a better caregivers communication / tracker / journal  app.

    The amazing team at Call Scotland put together this PDF with a number of app recommendations on to help with communication, it's worth a look here. It's difficult for me to tell you which one would be best without seeing Jimmy, so perhaps you could take a look at those from the PDF.

    In terms of making the iPad a remote for apple TV you can follow the step by step instructions from the apple website here

    I unfortunately don't have any experience with any caregiver tracker apps but did find this article from Mashable that may be of help.

    Hope this helps, please feel free to get back in touch & let us know how you get on.
