About Us: See Beneath is a California-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that was founded in 2012 with a mission to engage and educate children with autism (ASD) by creating and providing innovative tools that foster positive change and help children reach developmental milestones. Our vision is a world where all children with autism will develop to their full potential. Learn more, get involved, and contribute at www.seebeneath.org.
Aiko & Egor: Animation 4 Autism (@aikoandegor) is a free app created by See Beneath (a non-profit) that includes animated videos & games with research-supported skills to promote learning and engagement. The videos and games are developed for children on the autism spectrum and their family members and teachers. Aiko & Egor displays simplified animation, engaging underwater characters, and includes fun games to practice skills. The app is intended to be used by child & adult together to promote real-time engagement and supplement educational programs.
App Features: Enjoy our animated videos and games by engaging with the below features:
1) Play Video: Select this button to watch the entire episode all the way through or choose a particular scene from the episode. The Play Video feature is intended for the entire family to watch together but the videos are appropriate for a child to watch the video by his/herself or with siblings and/or friends.
2) Learn Together: Select this button to watch the same video content with learning opportunities or ""Bubble Times"" embedded at specific moments throughout the video. The Learn Together feature should only be selected when the adult and child are watching the videos together. During each Bubble Time, the video will pause and a menu will pop up that presents instructions for the learning moment. The adult will then follow the instructions on the menu to appropriately facilitate the learning moment and either replay the preceding action by the character or continue playing the video. You can also collect data on the child's responses in real-time and track improvements over time!
3) Skills Games: Select this button to practice skills that are modeled in the videos in different fun game formats (such as matching, shape or animal identification, turn-taking, etc). Every game under each episode is different so make sure to try them all to see which are most beneficial for your child. Some games can be played by the child his or herself, but we encourage an adult to engage with the child and even take turns so that the child is successful and does not get frustrated.
Research-Supported: See Beneath's co-founders have years of experience in autism research and intervention. Aiko & Egor utilizes principles based on Video Modeling and Applied Behavior Analysis. The learning and engagement domains and target skills are based upon the Early Start Denver Model and the Strategies for Teaching based on Autism Research curricula.
Feedback: We love to hear from our users and fans and always appreciate feedback so that we can improve the app for all children and families (email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us on social media @aikoandegor).
