This week we will look at an APP with lots of applications for a variety of needs: First Then.
This APP enables you to create visual schedules for individuals.
According to the iTunes website:
First-Then visual schedule application is designed for caregivers to provide positive behavior support. For individuals with communication needs, developmental delays, Autism or those who benefit from a structured environment; visual schedules serve to increase independence and lower anxiety during transitions through different activities. This application provides an affordable and convenient audio-visual prompting tool for use on the iPhone or iTouch. The portability of the iPhone and iTouch and ease of use of the application make it perfect for use at school, home or in the community.
Some of the features of this app include: ability to add your own audio recordings into the schedules. Also, use the built in camera on your device to take pictures and instantly add them to any visual schedule. You can also use the "Checklist" feature to allow someone to check off steps of a task that have already been completed.
This app, from Good Karma Applications Inc, costs $9.99.
As an added bonus this week - we would like to share a link to C/NET where they have recently published their iPAd2 case roundup.
