After successfully fundraising in order to purchase iPads for both of her children, Deanne Shoyer became very active in the special needs app community. Deanne was an admin and founding member of AppAble, a Facebook community designed to bring developers together with parents and others involved with special needs children. For the past year she has been a writer and editor at Smart Apps for Kids, the number 1 ranked site for children’s app reviews.

On her personal blog she shares her experiences as a parent of twin boys who are both on the autism spectrum as well as writing about subjects of interest to her like books, history and apps. Within a year her blog has amassed nearly 2,300 followers and has resulted in guest posting engagements at The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism , Help We’ve Got Kids and Tribal Nova’s blog. She has also written an Insider’s Guide to Toronto and her blog reached the Top 15 in Babble.com’s 2012 popular vote for the Top 30 Autism Blogs for Parents.
