1. This is a homemade calendar board that uses AAC symbols. 2. I think that this would be great to use in an inclusion classroom since both the general education students can use it, and so can the AAC users.

Apps We Love
Student: Lacking muscle control or fine motor skills Environment: any Task: Using an iPad or other touch screen device Tool: Students could use a glove with just one finger cut off so that they will be able to touch the screen and if their other fingers touch the screen it would not interfere with what they are doing.
Solution for accidental ipad taps - cut the index finger off of a glove. The glove covered fingers and palm will not activate the screen. Great idea!
