Software to Help with Autism & Other Social Learning Challenges
Help Zack, Emma, Sam, and Katie solve social problems! Each fully-animated, interactive lesson targets one of many skills children and young adults need to learn in order to develop meaningful relationships and successfully navigate our social world.
Thought bubbles containing images and words appear over the characters’ heads at key decision points during a lesson. Each thought bubble depicts an action that the character will take if the thought bubble is selected.
The Menu button allows the adult or user to replay the lesson from the beginning, choose a different lesson, turn the Teaching Tips on and off, return to the Main Menu, or resume the lesson.
The Pause/Resume/Replay button allows the adult to pause and resume the lesson at any time to provide an opportunity to discuss a “teachable moment” with the user. During decision points, this button will also allow the user or adult to replay the preceeding portion of the lesson.
The user will help each character resolve social situations at various locations around town including: a cafe, a fire station, an animal rescue, a music store, and a park.
Throughout each lesson, Teaching Tips appear with valuable information for the adult who is completing the lessons with the user. Teaching Tips may be turned on and off at any time.
