Laureate First Words: A couple of years back I worked with a seven-year-old autistic nonverbal child. His receptive skills were limited to being able to point to a few common items consistently. I pulled out all the stops trying to move this child forward. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful in making an small difference in his communication skills. At the time, I tried various iPad apps in my extensive arsenal. The child enjoyed swiping the pictures, but it never turned into a learning experience of the kind I intended.
I like the animations that are included in the app. The animations reinforce the vocabulary and are fun to watch. Children and adults will enjoy it.
