I am after some advice, DS was diagnosed with aspergers back in June. He has since received an Ipad and I was wondering what apps you would add to it to help DS.
I have looked but there are so many I felt overwhelmed, so thought I would get your advice.

What is he struggling with the most? Language? Social stuff? Managing change?
And does he have any obsessions (or "special interests")
My daughter has an itouch, and we've often purchased games that she can play with her friends. The itouch has proven to be a great social "ice breaker."
Another one we love is "Me Moves," which is a FANTASTIC calming application. Our OT introduced us to it, and it is fabulous.

He seems to pick up on maths fairly well.
He definitely really struggles with the language side of things and socially also.
He has quite an interest in music (especially guitars.)
I suppose I am looking for games that you learn from, he is very good at things like memory, puzzles etc etc.
