Helping individuals develop simple concept knowledge across a range of different areas related to everyday activities

Please Consider

The app can be quite repetitive and may not hold an individual’s interest.
Some of the concepts are abstract, e.g. rich, cute. Additionally, some of the picture and word associations may be challenging, e.g. “Right”, with a right turn traffic sign as the expected answer.
When the incorrect answer is selected, the app makes a particular noise and repeats the word which may be motivating for some individuals.
There is a lite version that can initially be downloaded in order to determine whether this app may be suitable for your child.

Generalise Skills and Knowledge

Use real objects within everyday situations such as in the classroom or at home and repeat the activities e.g. ask your child to find a certain object or show you where something is.
