Hi there,

My son is 5, also non verbal and addicted to his ipad! Talking Tom and Talking Ben are good as they mimic you, my son loves them and has recently started saying Hello so they copy him. I also have on there most of the free educational ones where they trace letters and numbers, he enjoys those. Im afraid to say tho he loves angry birds and temple run!
Hope this helps

I will unearth my apps for sen booklet when I go into school (I'm an sen teacher) and post some suggestions. If you wanted to private message me with some ideas about what sort of things your son is interested in it would maybe help me sift through the booklet as it has a lot.

Proloquo2go is excellent. Its so easy to customise you can add in any word you want and take photos of objects that he might want to request and indeed photos of family members. Very clear very easy to use!! Would fully reccomend it !

I'm sure it's great but why is it so expensive? I have a dd of 2 who probably isn't going to understand it just yet...but I'm looking for iPad apps to help her communicate. Maybe something a little more simple.
