E-Books & Activities

For families who are looking for some fun e-book and activities to keep active minds busy and provide some learning opportunities, we have created a short list of Online E-Books and Activities resources. 

Learning Tasks

Learning simple life skills are great for everyone! One skill that is essential for young children is hand washing. If you wish to work on generalizing this skill at home, it is very helpful for your child. We have included Learning Tasks - How to Wash Our Hands, with visuals, to help support your child's learning. 

Technology for Learning | iPad & Tablet Apps

There is a vast selection of iPad and Android apps available for Special Education. Below is a selection of apps focusing on Cause & Effect, Sensory, Literacy, Math, Fine Motor Skills and Communication. Several of these apps may be personalized for student learning by adding their own photos, text, sound and video. You may find most apps online via Google Play and the Apple App Store. Some apps may be subject to a purchasing fee.

Sensory, Cause & Effect
