ABAid

ABAid is our upcoming app for Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch). The app is designed to help teach langauge to children with special needs. The principles behind the app are based on our 15 years of working with children with special needs, particularly those with Autism.

The app has grown out of the needs of running our ABA consulting practice. Currently it is necessary to organize and manipulate flash cards, objects, and the like when working on language skills. Not only is this time-consuming and error-prone, it also leads to biases in the teaching (are you sure that you do not always put the flash cards down in such a way that you do not tip-off the target?). By harnessing the power of a touch screen computing device many of these issues can be eliminated. Data collection is also a breeze as data is continually collected while running a session in ABAid. More details can be found here.

We expect the app to be released via Apple's App Store this Winter.
