storysmart1: Trudy Goes to the Beach

Trudy is taking a beach trip with her family. Can she make expected choices when her sensory system is overloaded and she’s on a different schedule? What if things don’t go her way? She needs your help to make smart and safe choices!
storysmart is a suite of interactive, animated stories that provide both a recreational and therapeutic activity for elementary-school aged children who struggle with social language and communication. The apps are designed to help them develop these skills as well as social cognition, critical thinking and narrative skills. Users read and engage in a story with familiar settings – a trip to the beach, a day at school, a birthday party, playing on a soccer team, and others. The characters in each story need help solving problems, comprehending the setting, and using their social smarts to resolve numerous situations - and get positive feedback in the process! The primary goal of storysmart apps is to raise children's awareness of social expectations and to stimulate critical thinking skills to achieve the best outcomes in a variety of social settings.
