The iMums Favorite Reviewed Apps for Autism 2016



autism

Did you know according to the latest report from the CDC a staggering 1 in 68 people are diagnosed with Autism? April is Autism Awareness Month and The iMums wanted to showcase some of the apps that are helpful to people with this complex neuro-developmental disorder.  Many children with Autism respond really well to electronics, and iPads can be a very useful tool for them.

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are all unique individuals, so there is no one app that will be suitable for every child with Autism. This list includes some of The iMums favorite apps that we have reviewed that were designed specifically for children with Autism, or that help with skills that children with ASD often have difficulties with. In addition to the apps listed below, we have reviewed many more special needs apps and encourage readers to visit the Special Needs category on our website to find apps suitable for a particular skill you are working on with your child.

Many of these apps will be on sale at some time during this month, many only for a day, so keeping checking our Autism Awareness sale post

Specifically for Developed for Kids with Autism :

TOBY (Therapy Outcomes by You) Playpad by Autism West is designed for children under 7, who are not yet receiving specific interventions for Autism, or are in the early stages of therapy.  It is a comprehensive Early Intervention Program designed for home use with children with Autism and includes both on and off iPad activities. Each day, TOBY suggests a list of activities to do, and this changes as the app adapts to the child’s progress. Read our full review here.

Dr. Panda Bus Driver by Dr. Panda is a fun app featuring Dr. Panda driving a bus around either a city, countryside, harbor or a variety of other locations picking up and dropping off his passengers, painting the bus, refilling the gas tank and more! Much like a traditional bus, you have to stop to let passengers and other vehicles go by, stop for trains that will pass as well as clean up the bus after your “route” has been completed. This app is designed for preschoolers through early elementary school similar to other Dr. Panda apps and will provide hours of open ended play for them that uses fine motor skills both from seating passengers and driving the bus either with your finger or by gently moving your device to steer it from side to side to ensure it stays in the road.

Counting/Making Change:
Toca Store by Toca Boca creates a virtual shop where children can choose from a catalog of virtual products to stock and how much to sell them for. It can either be played alone or with two or more players. One can be the storekeeper and ring up sales, while the other is the customer. This is a great app because it facilitates turn-taking skills as well as simple counting. I also really liked the ability to purchase the items, and the magical coin purse coming up with more money as necessary for specific items. It also required individuals to finish their turns by first putting the item on the conveyor, ringing it up, paying for it, and then bagging it up before allowing someone to proceed on to the next step.

Money Up! by pkclsoft is an app that teaches money skills for those who have a disability that makes it difficult for them to learn how to count change. It uses the dollar up method in which the student is taught to give an amount that is just one whole dollar above the item’s price. For example, if a drink costs $2.50, the student is asked to pay $3.00. This method not only helps students become more independent, but also keeps them from being taken advantage of by getting the wrong change back. Currently on sale for 50% off! Read our full review

AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) Apps

No discussion of apps for Autism would be complete without mentioning AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication). Many non-verbal Autistic children have found a way to communicate using AAC apps on the iPad, and it is much cheaper than a dedicated AAC device. This is an area where we strongly recommend consulting with an SLP who specializes in AAC, to decide which is the best choice for the child, as truly there is no “one size fits all.” Here are some AAC apps to consider:

Proloquo2Go by AssistiveWare is an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) App, it is a universal app that can be used on  iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The purpose of the app is to give users a voice and the ability to communicate. I found Proloquo2Go to be an app that surpassed my expectations for performance. I was blown away with the available help on the website and the seemingly endless custom options that were very easy to learn and implement.” [ Read our full review here]

Educating and Motivating Students on the Autism Spectrum by Lois Jean Brady MA, CCC-SLP, CAS Matthew Guggemos MS, CCC-SLP

Read this article, and you will learn something new and useful. Hopefully, the previous sentence activated your nucleus accumbens, a structure located deep in your brain that plays a key role in reward and learning mechanisms. Whether you’re playing a videogame, listening to music, eating chocolate, or learning something new and interesting, the nucleus accumbens supports all of these experiences. Learning and engagement are, in fact, intricately woven together by specific regions in the brain. Yet the relationship between learning and engagement often gets short shrift — as if fun can dilute the content of an education. Current research is showing us, however, that learning and entertainment go hand in hand: in fact, edu-tainment may be the future of teaching and learning.

 

Ed·u·tain·ment (noun /ˌɛʤəˈteɪnmənt/) is content with a high degree of both educational and entertainment value that is designed to teach something — using games, computers, films, or other media.

We know that engagement and interest in academic tasks create positive educational experiences for children, which can spark curiosity and fascination for learning. And for children with autism, motivation and engagement are essential.  However, many school-aged children — kids with ASD included — are often given academic tasks that can be overly challenging and mostly unengaging.  Research suggests that mundane, uninteresting tasks can lead to behaviors, which can impede or interfere with learning. On the other hand, recent research has shown that having fun can improve learning: even abstract, complex information.

Currently, educators have effective strategies to help children with autism engage in a task and learn critical new skills — such as using a child’s “special interest” to connect to material, giving choices to promote involvement, reinforcing responses during a task, working for a reinforcer, and interspersing both easy and challenging tasks to mediate frustration. Combining these strategies as a “package” has been shown to improve motivation and engagement — while, at the same time, decreasing behaviors that negatively impact learning.

New mobile devices can help educators and therapists engage children on the autism spectrum, using the power of edutainment. With mobile technology — iPad, iPhone, tablet, and apps that literally fit in the palm of one’s hand — students on the autism spectrum are edutaining themselves and learning like never before.  As a matter of fact, studies have found that mobile technology not only motivates but allows children with autism to concentrate during learning and demonstrate what they have learned.

The concept of edutainment is not new, as a matter of fact.  In the past, we have been edutained by a number of now-famous shows — Schoolhouse Rock, Sesame Street, Bill Nye the Science Guy, and Smart Songs — to teach topics such as math, science, social skills, and history.  Board and video games have also been used to teach social skills and academic concepts.

Edu-tainment and apps — how do we employ the powerful principles of edutainment to engage students in academic tasks and improve performance, using apps on mobile devices? Choosing a great edutainment app is more than just picking a math or reading app; here are a few tips on choosing apps that use edutainment to effectively teach important skills such as communication, social behavior, or academics:

  • Use the apps yourself prior to giving them to your children or students.
  • Choose apps that can be customized with the child’s information or picture.
  • Find apps that include reinforcers (verbal or sound).
  • Emphasize apps that have a point system or levels.
  • Pick an app that engages as many of the senses possible.
  • Download apps that use various themes and are not repetitive.
  • Encourage your child to “help” choose the app.

Technology is increasingly infiltrating the educational system, offering students with autism access to tools that stimulate crucial areas of the brain responsible for learning and entertainment. Whether at home or in school, engagement and learning can go hand in hand.

Giveaway of 3x Inner Voice AAC app by iTherapy #BHSM



iPhone Screenshot 1Thanks to iTherapy we have 3 promo codes to give away for Inner Voice AAC app

You can read all about Inner Voice in this  Developer Interview with Lois Jean Brady, SLP – one of the app’s developers:

Thank you for participating our interview. Please tell us a little about yourself.

I am a speech pathologist, assistive technology specialist, certified autism specialist, author (Apps for Autism) and producer of Autism TodayTV. I work with students of every age and ability. I am also a registered Pet Partner Team and have a potbelly pig named Buttercup that provides “low tech” motivation for all; students, parents and staff.
Matthew Guggemos (co-developer) is also a speech pathologist who specializes in autism and assistive technology. He received the Mensa Education & Research Foundation Intellectual Benefit to Society Award for his patent of InnerVoice.

How did the idea for your app come about?

My co-creator, Matthew Guggemos and I work with students and attend parent meetings/IEPs on a daily basis. We noted two areas fundamental areas of need in communication apps. 1. Engagement – Parents and educators report that they cannot seem to get their child/student interested in their AAC app. 2. Cost – Many parents and school districts simply cannot afford the high price tag of AAC apps.
To solve the problem of engagement we partnered with MotionPortrait who creates 3D animated avatars from photos. Their motto is to “Surprise and Amaze!” We call this approach Edutainment.

Edutainment — teaching through a medium that both educates and entertains, iTherapy and MotionPortrait’s system emphasizes engagement and joint attention. At the same time, InnerVoice incorporates speech-pathologist-designed, evidence-based practices that improve speech, language, communication, and social skills. Recent research articles have postulated that education, entertainment, and video self-modeling can provide tremendous benefits for individuals with autism.

And how long was the process from the original idea to the release of the app?

The idea has been “stewing” in my mind for a while, however the entire process took approximately 9 months.
Matthew and I have been doing clinical trials to ensure the most effective, easy to use AAC app on the market.

Did you hire a developer or do it yourself?

InnerVoice is the product of a partnership between iTherapy and MotionPortrain. iTherapy provided the clinical trials and ensured that evidence based, best practices were adhered to in developing InnerVoice. MotionPortrait brought provided the best photo-based 3D avatars and synchronized mouth movements on the market today.

What has been the hardest obstacle you have had to overcome in the development process?

Keeping track of details. Every detail is important and makes the end product effective and user friendly. Writing the User Manual was also quite a challenge.

Have you had much support during the development process (from family, peers, Apple Inc.)?

We have been blessed with incredible family support! On those long nights when we find ourselves tapping at the keyboard, mumbling to the ceiling our families have jumped-in to help out in any way possible.

What are your plans for the future? Will you be developing any more apps?

Initially I told myself, “Never Again!” Now, I can’t wait to make more. The whole process is exciting and overwhelming and somehow addicting.

What sort of feedback has your app been receiving so far?

We spent many, many clinical hours with students from every age and ability and knew InnerVoice would engage and motivate students to communicate as-well-as teach language skills. We were relieved to hear others with the same outcomes.

And finally, what advice would you give to anyone considering creating their own app?

Do it!! Be prepared for a roller coaster. Also, know that the real work begins after the app is developed. Developing is only 1/2 the job, marketing is equally important.

Thank you so much for talking with us today and sharing a bit about your company.  We really appreciated the chance to get to know you!
