It's taken much longer than I anticipated, but we've finally come to the end of the Editor's Top 15 countdown. No. 1 on the list, by a fairly wide margin, is BrainPop Featured Movie. This free app provides an excellent, short animated educational video per day and is the first app I would recommend to another parent.
Please read my awesome five-star review:
My oldest son's favorite app. Actually BrainPop is probably his favorite thing in the world. A terrific free app that is a must-download if you have school-age children. We pay $6.99 per month, and are grateful to do it, for the full subscription.
My 10-year old son with autism uses a mechanism known as echolalia for various purposes. (Think Dustin Hoffman in the Rain Man reciting The People's Court intro over and over.)
Ryan does it to comfort himself like a blanket. When he was younger, he would recite Sesame Street, or a section from a book, or something else that he loved....
...So what does this have to do with BrainPop?
If you would like to download BrainPop please use the links provided. The cost is the same, but Smart Apps receives a small percentage. Thanks for your support!
