iOS Universal Education
Turn Around, Blow Whistle, Jump and Write name! These are few activities that a child needs to learn in early years. This app helps child learn and carry out such activities by merely watching.
‘See and Do’ packages multiple activities. Each activity comprises of multiple screens. A screen in turn carries Visual and Audio prompts for a step in the activity.
The app comes with default time settings to carry out each activity. However it is possible to set time for individual activity using setting options.
It is based on ABA method of intervention delivery.
As we know, the recommendation of 40 hours per week of ABA programming as employed by Lovaas’s study has been cited by many parents as being vital to their child’s success. The National Research Council’s 2001 report (p. 184) summarizes the skills necessary for implementing an effective ABA program as:
“Teachers must be familiar with theory and research concerning best practices for children with autistic spectrum disorders, including methods of applied behavior analysis, naturalistic learning, incidental teaching, assistive technology, socialization, communication, inclusion, adaptation of the environment, language interventions, assessment, and the effective use of data collection systems. Specific problems in generalization and maintenance of behaviors also affect the need for training in methods of teaching children with autistic spectrum disorders.
The wide range of IQ scores and verbal skills associated with autistic spectrum disorders, from profound mental retardation and severe language impairments to superior intelligence make the need for training of personnel even greater.”
ABA therapy is the only scientifically-validated treatment for children with developmental disabilities, special education needs or autism.
