6 Communication & Visual Scheduling APPS 

Here is a list of 6 APPS we have been using recently with Conor and Jack.  

Apps for Autism

LAMP Words for Life

“LAMP™ is a communication APP based on neurological and motor learning principles as well as clinical experiences that address the language development and communication needs of Autistic children.”

LAMP Words for Life™ app is symbol based for those who are not yet literate; however, those symbols are paired with text to support literacy development.

LAMP Words For Life™ is a full English vocabulary AAC app that is a therapeutic approach to language development. It provides a consistent motor pattern for words and a systematic way to develop communication skills while helping children to develop unlimited language growth. It is appropriate for all ages and communication levels.

Cost: $299.99

We recently were able to use this APP at a Specialist Training Appointment with Conor, you can read about that here in this POST or also over on our FACEBOOK page where you can watch videos of Conor using the APP.

APPS for Autism

iTouchilearn Life Skills Morning Routine

Morning routines come to life as players progress through each routine and receive virtual rewards for completing a task. Includes: activities that reinforce learning life skills, play space rewards and “sing to me” morning routines song. 

Kids interact with the catchy “Ready for School” song sung to the tune of “Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush”. Sing-A-Long Settings: 1. Words Without Music; 2. Music Without Words; 3. Music With Words

While not created specifically for Autistic children I really feel it will be helpful for children as they learn through the APP to go through their morning routines and can transfer the knowledge learned here into their own morning routine.

Cost: FREE

Autism APPS

Verbal Me

Cost €7.99

This is an excellent APP simple to use and very useful if your child is Autistic with Intellectual Disability. I have this APP for Conor and it is super simple to use but also very effective in helping him to communicate his needs on a basic level. It allows for type to talk and has a host of visuals your child can press to communicate his/her needs.

There is also a sample version of this called Verbal Me Sampler which is a FREE download! I would highly recommend using the Sampler version to see how your child likes it.

Visuals2Go

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/visuals2go/id417882424#?platform=iphone

CREATE – COMMUNICATE – PRINT!

Visuals2Go is created with children, teenagers and Adults who have moderate to higher support needs in mind. It is distinct from other Augmentative and Alternate Communication (AAC) in it’s versatility, it supports learners who needs access to hands on visuals by PRINTING cards in a range of different templates as well as those who needs that extra simple User Interface. Users can first learn to express themselves via choice making (where the card opens when selected) and then learning to use the sentence bar to express with more language.

Cost: FREE but full version costs €17.99

Try out the Free version before paying the full price. It is worth trying out the Free Version as it is quite impressive how effective it is.
