With the help of this app, you can teach them how to identify the sounds and help them understand what is going on around them.
The app has a free version that can allow the child to play up to 5 activities and share their scores on Facebook. Sounds of the House engages children and helps them learn new things about their own household appliances. Let your child learn various interesting sounds in a very simple way with the app Sounds of the House.
This ABA-based app is developed for children with autism to help them recognize sounds of various household appliances such as washing machine, vacuum cleaner, toaster, coffeemaker and blender.
Sounds of the House is part of the Shanesh COLORS Program, designed to deliver intense, evidence-based intervention to children with special needs, especially autism spectrum disorders.
The app, with the aid of assistive technology, helps build receptive skills that are essential to live an independent life. Built on the discrete trial part of applied behavior analysis, it includes colorful audio-visual prompts and a highly interactive gameplay environment.
In the actual gameplay environment the child is first introduced to a set of sounds before he or she is asked to link a particular sound to its correct source. For each question there is one correct source and one distracter.
