Thrifty Therapy


One of my favorite tools to use in the therapy setting is an iPad, mainly because it is lightweight, portable, enticing (to most), and it offers a multitude of apps that can be used to target specific goals and objectives.  In my experience, kids really enjoy the interactivity that certain apps add to a session, and adult clients are open to their use in most situations.

As a new clinician with limited resources (that grad school is sure expensive!), I've developed a great way to build my pool of applications by utilizing the following apps-- sounds like a gimmick... apps that promote free apps! There are rumors that apple will be putting the squash on free app promotions, but for now, you can utilize the following to download free content to your apple device, but the catch is that most of the deals are only up for about 24 hours, meaning you will want to check on them every day.

For me, that's part of the fun, getting to check each day to see what apps are available for free, when they are normally downloaded at a cost!

Appsfire
App Price Drops
Apps Gone Free

These are just a few of the apps that promote other free apps, but the three listed above are the ones I use personally on a daily basis and their use has saved me significant amounts of $$! I've managed to snag some amazing steals with free Toca apps (this one being just an example-- there are TONS of them and they are all great to use as Tx supports,  or as reinforcers)!
