Max's Favorite App

This is Endless Alphabet.


It's Max's favorite app. And it's brilliant.

Max has difficulty talking. He is still developing speech and language. It's hard to communicate with him. But when he plays Endless Alphabet his face lights up and I know he's having fun and learning.



Max can't say many words, but he now knows about 20 letters and can identify them on command. He points out his favorite letters to us all the time.

Endless Alphabet is made by Originator. They make a bunch of great apps for kids. Check them out.

Note: I swear I'm not being paid to promote this app. I just really like it.

Another Note: As a professional illustrator I really appreciate how well designed and animated the whole thing is. So many apps for kids are ugly garbage. This whole app is beautiful. So much personality in the characters too.

  1. That's cool that you guys found that app. I'm interested in knowing how Max communicates. I noticed in one post that you guys taught him sign language.

    1. Hi there. Sorry I just saw this comment. I am usually so good at responding.
      Max does use sign language. We have taught he please, more, all done, milk and if I else fails we tell him "Can you show me, or can you take me to what you want?" That is the hardest part with an ASD child. They don't communicate well, so it is a bit of a guessing game.
