Just a Note:
I love my Mac. But there are a few things better suited for your iPad
and iPhone. GPS comes to mind.
Accessibility programs may well be another. Go to the iOS App Store and do a search.
Apps like LAMP Words For Life, TapTapSee or P3 Mobile just aren't as practical sitting on your desktop.

Boardmaker Student Center 1.7.2
The Boardmaker Student Center app is where students of all abilities can go to access activities assigned to them through Boardmaker Online. The app brings the power of personalized visual supports and symbol adapted educational materials to the iPad. The student’s custom accessibility settings are instantly in effect the moment they log in, providing the ultimate in personalization. The advanced access methods (scanning, touch enter, touch exit, etc) mean that these powerful activities are fully accessible.
Boardmaker Online is a subscription service that provides a host of tools to support Speech Language Pathologists and Special Ed Teachers as they provide instruction to students with language and learning impairments. The system includes the Boardmaker Online Editor for creating or editing symbol adapted activities, but it also provides access to a huge sharing community where you can find activities others have created. Activities can then be assigned to students. A student can login from any web browser and play the activities assigned to them, but if they want to use them on the iPad, they simply install this app and log in. If the assigned activities were created using a Performance tracking template, the results of the activity are logged and reported back to the instructor. With that information the instructor can make decisions about what to assign next!
