Good luck to Adam and his Mom and have fun! You're right that many apps required some vision. Popular apps for babies or toddlers who are totally blind often have some kind of music, animal sounds, or other interesting auditory feedback. Interactive stories and communication apps can also be fun, engaging and educational for young children.
I am the mummy of a totally blind 16 month boy. He is very brilliant and learns quickly. He is also very active. I have not tried any of these apps as yet but was wondering which ones would be suited for totally blind babies. Many of them seem to require some vision excpet the ones which fall into the music category. Does anyone with a blind baby have experience using the other apps? Thanks for sharing these ideas, Melissa! We'd love to see an example of what you've created with Grasshopper apps, as well as more details about how it's working out with the BlueTooth switch.
Let us know at PathsTo. Literacy Perkins. Hi I recently acquired a Bluetooth switch to work with my students. I found a list on enabling devices website. Also, I just found a great "brand" this week for those who need photos on plain background. Look for Grasshopperapps. They use bright photos on a plain white background and you can change the settings to the number of items presented from , add your own photos, and record your own praise.
So far I love these. Thanks for the question - we are just starting with switches -so I am sorry I don't have an answer for this. This may be the next topic for sharing!

I'm a firm believer in real-life, hands-on experiences to help young children grow and learn. Thanks for writing these posts. My boys love out I-pad but I find it difficult to find quality apps. Thanks for this post, and especially for including a few free apps. Hi Becky — I just directly clicked on the links from each title and downloaded all three for free! It might be worth another shot!! My DD is just 1.
Thank you for sharing these. I think my toddler will love them. I created a pinterest link to them too.
