Individuals with autism have unique learning challenges, requiring special teaching materials. Children often struggle to select which information is important in a picture. A picture of an apple on a plate may illicit “plate” instead of “apple.” Or they may identify the red apple, but not the green apple. Stages Learning Materials’ products specifically meet the special criteria of early autism education programs. Stages now offers Language Builder® iPad, based on their industry-leading picture card set. Used by BCBAs, SLPs, teachers, and parents, the full app includes six highly customizable ABA-based activities. A free version of the app provides full access to two of the six activities: Identical and Similar Matching.
Scene Speak from Good Karma Applications provides a framework on the iPad to create visual scene displays and interactive social stories. The application allows users to customize an image with multiple, different-sized sound areas, popup text, and animated text. In addition, users can link scenes to each other via a “hotspot.”
Designed for the iPad by Language Learning Apps, QuestionIt ED provides systematic instruction over multiple opportunities to teach children with autism or other significant language disorders what kind of word answers which type of Wh question.
Designed for the iPad and iPhone, Enuma’s Kid in Story Book Maker enables students to use green screen-like technology to put photos of themselves or others into a story template and then add text and voice recording.
