Words in Pictures
The first app expressly made to give parents, teachers and therapists an effective, customizable, portable tool for visual communication to the child or adult suffering from Autistic Spectrum Disorders or intellectually impaired.
The peculiarity of the app lies in its focus on setting a gradual path in the communication exchange which starts from the adult and is oriented to the child. The emphasis is put on the sharing of meaning; then the autistic person is encouraged to an "outgoing" active involvement.
3 MAIN SECTIONS:
1. PICTURES: Show symbols (SymbolStix™ library included), create new cards and teach meanings. Highly customizable: take a picture or use a previously saved image, add texts, create categories and record the audio you want.
2. MESSAGES: Quickly make rules and instructions for everyday living. Special Feature: type in the text of a sentence, the app will translate it quickly into a sequence of pictures.
3. AGENDA: Visual schedule, time planning, routine learning. Special features: set up to 4 levels of detail, let the child choose between 2 cards and add markers on the activities (the "v" for "done", the "flip card", the "x" for "don't do")
