Video/Audio Helps Kids Answer Questions

Answering simple “yes” and “no” questions might not be so simple for autistic children. Because most tend to have language delays and a limited vocabulary, it’s a challenge for them to answer “yes” or “no” because they most likely do not fully understand or process what’s being asked.

TalkTime Pediatric Speech Academy has created, yet, another great education app for kids that help them answer “yes” or “no” questions using video, images, and audio.

The Series II Yes/No Questions app includes three modules of questions

  1. Common Objects
  2. Actions
  3. Common Facts

Answering Common Questions

The app includes answering questions about common objects using 13 still pictures in the Common Questions module. A picture of an item the child might see every day, such as, a lamp appears with tappable “yes” or “no” button they can choose.

The app includes audio which asks them “is this a cup?”  The child can tap the green “yes” button or the red “no” button.

When the child gets a correct answer, they get visual and audio “way to go” reinforcement, which they love.

Using Video

Videos are great tools for keeping these kids’ attention! This app uses 43 short videos in the Actions and Common Facts modules.

Actions, such as drinking, swimming, throwing are included in the Actions module and every day facts, such as, “do we fly in a car?” use video to illustrate the action.

When working in these modules, children see a colorful video showing an example of say, pulling a wagon. The child is asked “is he pulling a wagon?” The child taps either the green “yes” button or the red “no” button. Visuals help autistic children associate the actions with the visual.  This helps them process the question and how they should answer.

My son still finds answering questions correctly a challenge because he needs a lot of visuals to help him understand exactly what questions are being asked. Audio and visual reinforcement show the child that he or she got the answer correct, which they will appreciate immensely!

As children build their knowledge of simple yes and no questions with this app, they also build their vocabulary and their language skills. Speech language pathologists, teachers, and parents can use this app to enhance their child’s language skills at home, in therapy, and at school.

 

Data Tracking Available in Yes / No Questions

What’s neat is parents and users can track their answers to see which were correct and which the kids might need additional practice with.

This app is sure to keep kids’ attention while helping them process the questions and how to correctly answer. They will build their vocabulary, language, and more importantly, their self-confidence so they can continue answering questions and enhance their language.

    Our new favourite is Kodee’s Canoe. It has a great story, beautiful animation, and the kids were glued to the story. There is also a fantastic educational component about echoes that I give 2 big thumbs up!

    I think the “Common Objects” section of this app would aid greatly in the introduction of basic concepts that could lead to an easier transition to AAC communication. My son is 15 and completely non-verbal. His receptive language is quite good, but his expressive language is nil. Drills that introduce and explain the properties of common objects could prove very beneficial as we work toward an understanding of the use of an AAC app.

    Love ALL Series II as much as the first one! It holds my students attention and they love the visual and auditory rewards. Excellent for teaching comprehension of yes and no.

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.
