We’re so excited to be presenting at the 120th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association, in Orlando. We’ll be at Booth #308. Stop by to visit with us if you’re attending!
The Language Express, an interactive social learning software developer, will demonstrate its new program, The Social Express™, at the 120th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association. The APA Convention is taking place August 2nd to 5th in Orlando and the company’s booth number is 308.
The Social Express is a new research-based, 16-lesson, social learning software program for children between the ages of five and 12 years. It uses interactive video modeling, movie quality animation, socially valid dialog, and original characters that children find engaging.
Each one of the 30 interactive scenes contains teachable moments and builds on the previous lesson. The teachable moments assist professionals and parents to reinforce social skills learning. The program can be paused at any point to facilitate discussion between the professional and the child.
Children with autism, Asperger’s and ADHD enjoy and request the program daily. They enjoy its engaging characters, realistic social dialog, Hollywood-quality animation, and interactive scenes.
According to President Jon Cornick, “The Language Express team is excited to meet and share our social learning program best practices with professionals that are coming together at the APA convention.”
“Therapists, Speech Language Professionals and parents tell us that kids ask to use The Social Express because they are motivated to work to unlock the ‘hidden social keys’ in the clubhouse,” Cornick added.
Based on feedback from both professionals and parents, The Social Express works equally well for children with different levels of social skill deficits. This social learning program is appropriate for varying ability levels because professionals can enrich or modify their own instruction during sessions.
Therapists use the program’s video modeling as a strong support for any social skill concept that is the focus of a session. Examples of social skill concepts include how to stay with the group, how to talk about what others are talking about and self-advocacy.
Based on feedback from professionals and families, children diagnosed on the autism spectrum as well as neurotypical children experiencing social learning challenges, benefit from interacting with the program.
The company’s American Psychological Association Convention booth (number 308) will have iPads equipped with The Social Express social learning software.
