FREE ABA App for Children with Autism

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.
