Autism App for iPad Builds Visual Identification Skills

Many children with autism have a difficult time with perceiving details about the objects around them.  Go Go Games is an autism app for iPad consisting of three games that effectively assists these kids in building perceptual skills that can help them in the real world.

These three games encourage kids to look at an object, pick out several important features about that object, and then match other items to it.

Go Go Games are, in addition to being educational, wonderful fun for everyone!

 

Build-a-Train Game

The Build-a-Train matching game is appealing to kids who like vehicles and enjoy vibrant characters!

The top of the screen shows a complete set of train cars.  Below that set, the user is given a choice of at least two train cars.  Kids then have to drag the correct, or matching, car and attach it to the pink train engine to move on to the next train car.

There is no negative feedback, so kids can try as many times as they would like to make the correct match!

Build-a-Train is also great sequencing practice, as the cars need to be assembled in the correct order.  Activities get progressively more difficult as the levels move up, giving a greater number of cars to match and to pick from when building the train.

 

Wheels and Roads Game

Wheels and Roads was my favorite of the three Go Go Games, and it involves the same basic perception principles as the other two game modes.

A car appears in the road, and kids have to drag the car down the street to the matching street sign at the end.  Children will enjoy dragging the cars around, and this game will help them to distinguish between several items that may seem similar at first glance.

I would say that Wheels and Roads is the easiest of the three games in this autism app for iPad, so start with this one if kids are having trouble playing the other two.

 

Out of This World Game

Out of This World is probably the most advanced of the three Go Go Games, as kids on the spectrum will need to notice small details when playing it.  Similar to Build-a-Train, users are given the task of recreating aliens by putting together the correct body parts.

This game could be difficult for some children, as blue feet are different from blue and green feet, but on the other hand, many children with autism have an excellent visual cortex, meaning that all three of these games might be a snap!

For kids who aren’t skilled in this area, however, Out of This World will take a bit of time and practice to master — so, there is a lot of learning opportunity here!

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.
