My boys love Math Ninja. :)

Also, this isn't an app but if you use Sequential Spelling on dvd, the files can be copied to the ipad.

Wow, Hollie. I feel like I need to send you a big bunch of flowers or something...you just made my life SO MUCH BETTER. Anna's neuropyschologist recommended that we get one of the elapsing timers and create charts for routines. I just found perfect aps for both needs. I love the video demos so I can actually *see* what I'm getting and how it will work for us. Thank you!

Here are my favorite dyslexia apps (http://www.libertyhillhouse.com/2013/04/01/dyslexia-apps-more-than-just-phonics/). When googling I found that a lot of my searches for help with dyslexia seem to return with simple phonics recognition apps, which are good, but really not designed for the special needs of dyslexic kids. I tested a lot of less than helpful apps, and finally came up with this mish-mash of great auditory memory, visual memory, and phonetic recall apps.

I'd love to learn about more - so please add to my list!
