Clean Up: Category Sorting App

The Clean Up: Category Sorting app is wonderful because it is simple.  In fact, there isn’t even a title screen on this app – it just launches you straight into the game!

The objective of this app is for your child to match the correct items with the correct clean-up locations.

Kids are shown three categories: toys, food, and clothes.  When they put a pair of pants in the clothes section, depicted by a closet, they are rewarded with a golden star and a kind sounding voice.

When they decide that the pants should be put in the food basket, they are gently told to try again.  I don’t believe the gentle negative feedback will discourage a kid on the spectrum from using this app, and I do believe that they will enjoy the positive reward!

Accuracy Percentages for Parents

At the top right corner of the app, there is a running count of the percent of items that your child put in the correct spot.  This is just if you want to make sure they understand the objective and aren’t just dragging things randomly.

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.
