Children on the autism spectrum find it a challenge to communicate.  Communicate Easy has a goal to make communication easy and fun for kids.

 

Communicate Easy Uses Visual and  Audio

Pluja Apps Limited created this app specifically for children with ASD, Asperger’s, ADHD/ADD, and other learning challenges. Some autistic children are non-verbal and others have language delays.  This app includes visual prompts, photo cards, customizable schedules, audio, and video to make communicating fun.

The beautiful thing is that parents, like myself, will surely appreciate its $2.99 price and its many customizable options.

Using Libraries: Animals, People, Places

Communicate Easy comes with preset libraries for animals, learning, objects, people, places, and schedules.

Each category is tappable and includes a number of cards.

Audio tells what the card is and there are subcategories in learning for numbers, colors, and letters.

Users can add as many cards as they want, create new categories, and add video or audio!

Each card is tappable and once completed successfully, users tap a check mark to show success. A green check lets you know you’ve mastered that card, a question mark means you still need practice, and the red crossed out circle means it’s a do-over.

Kids, especially non-verbal friends, will love the brightly colored graphics and will appreciate the visual cues.

Customizing Cards

Parents can add pictures of their child’s family and friends, familiar places, and favorite objects. When a child can relate an object to something they know, it makes learning all the more fun.  This relationship also enables them to retain and relate the picture to an item.

Another plus is that parents can add sound and video to each card by tapping the name of the card to the left.

Visual Schedules

We live off of lists and schedules.  Autistic and other special needs kids are no different.  They thrive on visual schedules. They love preparing themselves for the next activity.

Communicate Easy users can create schedules for specific activities that their children or students are challenged with.

I personally love how customizable this app is. I already know exactly how I could customize it for my own son for his vocabulary building, daily tasks, and communication skills.

Parents, therapists, and teachers can customize the app with specific items for specific children to address each’s learning style!

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.
