Speech Sequencing Shows Basic Activities

Speech With Milo: Sequencing is a great iPad and iPhone application for children on the ASD spectrum.  Thanks to Poorani Doonan, a speech therapist and developer of this iPad and iPhone application, for only $2.99 you can replace those old, expensive sets of story sequencing pictures with this fresh, new app.

As you may know, many children with autism carry around velcro boards, which can depict three steps of an activity in order.  Speech With Milo: Sequencing accomplishes something similar to this, but electronically.

This story sequencing pictures application shows your child three different pictures that pertain to a single activity.  Let’s use the example of tying one’s shoes.  The app displays Milo, a blue mouse, with his shoes both tied, with his shoes both untied, and in the act of tying his shoes.  The user needs to be able to identify that the untied shoes are first, the process of tying shoes is second, and the tied shoes come third.

Playing baseball, getting dressed, eating a hamburger, waking up, baking a cake, washing hands, building a sand castle, swimming, diving, going to sleep, reading a book, and watching a movie are just some of the many sequences that are included with Speech With Milo: Sequencing.

When your child has put the three notecards in order, he will be rewarded by applause and with the option to watch the scene he has created.  (To watch, just press the play sign which comes up after the cards are placed correctly in order.)

Speech With Milo: Sequencing – Settings

The settings allow the user to toggle on and off the “success sound,” “unsuccessful sound,” background music, spoken / written words, and hints.  I recommend changing the unsuccessful sound option to “off” and the hints to “on.” (By default, the unsuccessful sound is on and the hints are on, so you’ll need to change the former.)  Many children on the spectrum do not take lightly to negative sounds and might be discouraged from using the app if left as is.  Children with autism like encouragement – doesn’t everyone?  So, reward your kids for their good work!

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
